Pasta and Puccini

  • Wolferts Roost Country Club 120 Van Rensselaer Boulevard Albany, NY, 12204 United States (map)

This year's Pasta & Puccini will offer you the atmosphere of an historic
property, Wolfert's Roost, a name given to the former estate of the late
Governor of New York David B. Hill in 1892. You will begin the
evening with a spread of imported cheeses and passed hors d'doeuvres before entering the ballroom with its scenic vista. Enjoy the ambiance along with your choice of entree-Pan Seared Atlantic Salmon with a shallot-dill butter sauce or Roast Prime Rib of Beef au jus or Baked Chicken Breast stuffed with Vermont brie and topped with Sherry wine Veloute sauce and finish with a delectable Tiramisu and coffee before the entertainment begins.

Three of the country's most exciting singers, all members of the 2018 Young Artist Program at Opera Saratoga, will perform throughout the evening under the musical direction of Sara Chiesa, a distinguished alum of the program: soprano Asleif Willmer, mezzo soprano Paulina Villarreal and baritone John Tibbetts. Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson will host the program which will include a few musical surprises you won't want to miss!
