Opera returns to Front Royal’s Osteria Italian Kitchen April 13-14

Published

on

FRONT ROYAL –Highlights from Bizet’s opera “Carmen” will be staged at the Front Royal restaurant Osteria 510 Italian Kitchen next month, the fourth in a continuously sold-out classical music series.

Local favorites Melissa Chavez, soprano, and Nicholas Carratura, tenor, with accompanist Jan Wagner, will again anchor the dinner-theatre type show. Wagner is the director of orchestral studies at Shenandoah University.

A four-course dinner is offered by restaurant owner Vincenzo Belvia. The artists perform between courses with one of them explaining the words to the Italian language arias as the show progresses.

According to “impresario” David Freese who approached Belvia with his “night at the opera” idea two years ago, three out-of-town artists will perform “Carmen” with Chavez and Carratura.

The two nights of music, April 13 and 14, begin at 6 p.m. and are open only to those with reservations. Tickets for the dinner and entertainment are $60 and may be reserved by calling (540) 631-1101
