Opera in the Italian Garden
I have never really acquired the taste for Opera. Some of the popular songs are terrific (Pagliacci, Carmen, Nessun Dorma, the Three Tenors, etc.) but I can't always get into the more difficult selections.
Last Sunday at the Italian Cultural Garden over 1100 of us saw a terrific performance of about 20 opera "hits" by the artists of Opera per Tutti (opera for all). That's Mezzo-soprano Paulette Penzvalto in the photo above.
It's a perfect setting for opera and people brought wine and cheese and picnics for the event.
TV personality Jan Jones was the surprise Narrator and she did a great job with some difficult Italian pronunciations.
Here are 5 pages of photos and videos of the people and performances from the Opera in the Italian Garden
