a celebratory wine tasting and concert at The Woodwinds on Sunday, June 9, 2019
Opera Theater of Connecticut is delighted to invite you to our always exciting, always informative Opera Gala and wine-tasting: Wine, Women and Song. Join us for our fifteenth annual Opera Gala as we launch our 34th season and prepare for an exciting August 2019 summer presentation of Donizetti’s romantic comedy, L’Elisir d’Amore.
As we have for the past years, we will present Wine Women and Song at the delightful Woodwinds in Branford. Woodwinds, operated in collaboration with Café Allegre in Madison, is an award-winning family owned banquet hall with beautiful gardens as well as ample parking! The banquet hall provides a comfortable venue in which to blend the enticing elements of Wine, Women and Song.
This lovely event will be held on Sunday, June 9, 2019, from 5:00pm to 7:30pm. Enjoy the garden view while hearing selections of operatic favorites and tasting and testing selections of blockbuster wines. Fine music and fine wine are intertwined, and we will again present a glorious blend of voices brought together for this fundraiser as you compare a sampling of specially chosen wines to mark the celebration. Buffet stations and desserts will complement the wine selection and complete this fabulous afternoon.
A select set of wines will once again be presented by Ian Ford, founder of NIMBILITY, a wine and spirits consulting and management company based in Hong Kong, building markets for wine and spirits producers across Asia. Ian has lived and worked in the wine import and production business in Asia for over twenty years and travels extensively to the vineyards in Europe, South America, Australia. New Zealand, and the United States. He frequently leads and attends wine-tastings and expos in China and abroad.
