Valentine’s Day weekend would not be complete without a romantic tour of the old world origins of musical theatre. The new quartet of Florentine Opera Studio Artists will delight audiences with the beauty of operetta, arias and song.

General Director William Florescu hosts this romantic revue featuring performances of famed operettas, light opera, and musical theater favorites.

Florentine Opera ladies will wear designs by Project Runway’s Timothy Westbrook. The gentlemen will wear accessories styled by Timothy with additional attire from Picardy Shoes and Harley’s Clothing for Men. The Dress for Success initiative was made possible through support of the following sponsors: Murph Burke, Catherine Costantini, Sarah Damsgaard, Mary Ann LaBahn, Kristine Lueders, Dr. Karin Madsen Drescher, Susan Quadracci, Julie Steinhafel and Kathleen Wilson.

Pre-Opera Dining RSVP for this event has closed. Please join us for our next pre-opera dining events in March.
