Take a quick trip back to 1960’s Italy with Opera Santa Barbara’s “La Dolce Vita” fundraiser, where local architect Britt Jewett, owner of Studio 7 Architecture and Allied Arts, will transform the Granada Theater’s stage into Rome. By using the famous Trevi fountain as the focus and encouraging 1960’s cocktail attire, this copy of Roman nightlife is sure to be realistically appealing.
Classic 60’s Italian pop songs will be presented by New York soprano Jessica Medoff, who is joined by keyboardist Michael Bunchman. Band Leader Dick Prato and Bella Musica will also help create the atmosphere, providing nightlong music for you to dance to.
You can also get a taste of Italian cuisine through Via Maestra’s catered buffet and delicious gelato bar, as well as signature martinis and Palmina wine. And don’t forget to check out the live auction, where a week in the elegant Palazzo Rimbotti in Florence is just one of the exciting premiums items.
The show brings Rome to you May 9th at 5:30 p.m. You can make reservations for this inspiring night by calling 805/898-3890 or visiting Opera SB.
