New Rochelle Opera will host a fundraiser dinner entitled BRING BACK CARMEN on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at Ciao Restaurant, 5 John Albanese Place, Tuckahoe, NY, 10709. The event will support the Company’s upcoming 30th anniversary revival production of George Bizet’s, Carmen.
“We are quickly approaching our 30th season,” said NRO Artistic Director Camille Coppola. “We chose to revive this production to celebrate our anniversary because Carmen is lush, passionate and electrifying—the quintessential dramatic piece. Our patrons deserve a stellar production, and we are having this fundraiser to ensure that we can deliver our grandest production yet.” Performances of Carmen are planned for June 25, 26, 27 & 28, 2015.
The fundraiser will include a four-course dinner including wine, and a concert featuring some of the Company’s most popular soloists.
