An Opera Kind Of Night

{Photos by Alessandro and I}

This Tuesday I had the privilege to attend Opera Lyra Ottawa's Italian Garden Party at the beautiful Italian Ambassador's residence where the guests enjoyed some great Hors d’oeuvres, wine and opera arias. It was entertaining, and they're way better than my Snoop Dogg yodels to Bluesfest from too much wine where my aria was along the lines of  "When the pimp's in the crib ma..."

By the way, La Bohème by Puccini will be at the NAC on September 8, 10, 12, 15th. It's one of the most popular operas there is, so if you're into it, check it out!

  11. One of my sisters burned me out on opera--she trained to be an opera singer. But I do still enjoy it in small doses--just about the average amount in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. =)

    You look very lovely in B&W.

  12. Beautiful and stunning!!!! Though I too enjoy my fair share of "dropping it like its hot", I am THRILLED about the goodness that is Puccini coming our way this Fall. During my undergrad I worked fairly closely with Laurence Ewashko- Chorus Master of Opera Lyra, and he is nothing short of wonderful. Just like your dress, just wonderful! Glad to hear you had a great time!

  14. I was a music major, so I love anything smelling like Operas, Orchestra, Ballet music etc. But I also move to Nicki Minaj's songs and get happy when she won something (beats me what though, I'm too old to remember those awards, hehe).
