The Opera series at Cobb’s Mill premiered in October. The intent of the owners, Elayne Cassara and Drew Friedman, is to offer an educational experience which is also entertaining; and accompanied by great food. A fine meal complemented by juicy tidbits of music history, amusing anecdotes and operatic arias is a rare combination which you will not want to miss.
“Diva” Laura Papallo will present the series, singing selections which will highlight great moments of Opera History. Laura has performed and lectured in Europe and the US and seeks to bring her own humorous touch to a subject she is passionate about. Laura delivered this series of talks in Italy where she was a coordinator for the Trinity College Elderhostel Programs.
On December 9th, “Classic Movie Favorites” will plunge you into a world of nostalgia as we listen to the “classiest” classics of the silver-screen. We will witness the shift from Traditional Opera to the new wave of Musical Theater which occurred in the 1900’s. Our program will also unveil the mystery of Marni Nixon, the first singer to “cross-over” from Opera to Broadway. Marni was a “ghost”- singer for your favorite Hollywood stars, including Marilyn Monroe!
Payment required at time of reservation.
