TUE, APRIL 30, 6-7:30PM
 

This season the Metropolitan Opera showcases wonderful examples of French opera as well as operas that have France or specifically Paris as a setting or influence.  The evolution of French grand cuisine interestingly paralleled the development of French grand opera beginning in the late 18thcentury and culminating in the late 19th century, particularly in Paris.    

    

Join Food Historian and Chef Carl Raymond as he explores how both food and opera came to be grand against the backdrop of the 18th century Comedie Francaise, as well as the glittering world of the 1890’s Belle Epoque and the great Parisian restaurant and café society.

TUE, MAY 14, 11AM-12:30PM 
 

Richard Tucker was unquestionably one of the world’s most eminent tenors. After beginning his musical career as a cantor in New York’s most prestigious synagogues, he went on to reign over the Golden Age of opera as one of the Metropolitan Opera’s superstars. The event, celebrating the astounding life and career of America’s greatest tenor presented by biographer James A. Drake, and one of Tucker’s sons, Dr. David Tucker, takes us on an intimate journey highlighting the life and career of this unparalleled artist. 

 

 Join us on May 14th for this personal look at one of opera’s most celebrated singers, featuring archival interviews with Richard and Sara Tucker and footage of memorable performances including “E lucevan le stelle” and “Vesti la giubba”.
