Opera Presentation and Lunch at Casa Belvedere
The Strong, Courageous and Independent Operatic Women of Giuseppe Verdi
A Video Presentation by Dr. Snjezana Smodlaka & Lou Barrella
Thursday, March 10 - doors open 11:30 am, program begins promptly at noon

Come savor fine dining at Casa Belvedere with scenic views of New York Harbor and the Verrazzano Bridge while embracing your love of music!

This program will focus on strong and spirited women who can also be spontaneous and stubborn; however, in the realm of opera, one must sometimes suspend reality for the greater purpose of powerful musical interpretations. Great composers create music that makes us believe in and support their heroines, the causes they endorse and the actions they take.  Ultimately the genius of Verdi causes us to understand them, sympathize with them and deeply admire them!  So, let’s glimpse into the lives and situations of these operatic ladies from five of the Maestro’s works.

Lunch includes wine and soft drinks. Tax and gratuities included.

Non-Members: $75 per person / Casa Members & Garibaldi Museum Members: $70 per person

Proof of vaccination is required for all in-person events.
