MILWAUKEE, Wis. - May 25, 2011 - The Florentine Opera is pleased to present one of Milwaukee’s favorite summer traditions: Florentine at the Lake. Once again, the Florentine teams up with Alterra Coffee to bring audiences a twice-monthly concert series filled with arias, ensembles and opera favorites. Audiences are invited to sit back and enjoy delicious Alterra food and drinks at one of Milwaukee’s hottest summer hangouts.
Throughout the summer, Florentine at the Lake audiences will have the opportunity to take advantage of special Florentine Opera ticket and merchandise promotions, including the chance to win free tickets to mainstage productions. Audiences will also enjoy a tantalizing sneak peek into the Florentine’s 2011-2012 season, featuring Puccini’s Turandot (November 4 & 6, 2011), Floyd’s Susannah (March 16 & 18, 2012) and Mozart's Idomeneo (May 18 & 20, 2012), with a special bonus Valentine’s Day-inspired concert, Isn’t It Romantic? Love Songs from Vienna to Broadway (February 10, 11 & 12, 2012). Added performances will expand the series to two additional Alterra cafes: Alterra Humboldt (August 24 at 7:00 pm) and Alterra Grafton (August 31 at 6:00 pm).
