A Celebration of Fine Dining and Operatic Excerpts

On Saturday, October 9th First Coast Opera launched their new season with their Operatic Feast, an evening of food, drink and music!  Close to 100 people gathered to enjoy a program that started with delicious food catered by La Cocina International Restaurant in St. Augustine.  As guests enjoyed their meal, they were surprised by strolling performers, who included soprano Lisa Lockhart, soprano Brittany Fouché, mezzo-soprano Regina Torres and baritone John Daugherty.

Following dessert, the formal program was launched with an audience singalong of Funiculi, Funicula led by FCO’s Artistic Director Curtis Tucker. The talented stars, accompanied by pianist Yelena Kurdina, then entertained the room with a selection of opera favorites.
