Saturday, May 6, 5:30 p.m.—PAWLET—The Slate Valley Museum (SVM) has teamed up with internationally acclaimed American soprano Anya Matanovi to bring a night of Italian opera music and dinner to the Pawlet Town Hall Saturday, May 6 at 5:30 p.m.
The evening of music will be paired with Italian cuisine. Tickets for this fundraiser are $55 per person. Reservations are required.
Praised for her thrilling vocal color and sweetly winning presence, Matanovi made her international opera debut as Musetta in Franco Zeffirelli’s captivating production of Puccini’s “La bohème” with the New Israeli Opera.
In her debut with the Glimmerglass Festival as Micaëla, she was praised for her “sinuous soprano with its golden timbre and silky-smooth legato, [which] charmed the ears immediately …” and “first-class performance,” said David Abrams, Musical Criticism.
SVM Board Trustee Heather Thomas said, “This will be a very special evening in the Slate Valley. What an opportunity to pair our local history, regional Italian cuisine, Italian opera music, and cocktails served by our friends and neighbors at the Barn Restaurant in a charming village setting. We recently discovered that the second floor auditorium at the Pawlet Town Hall is more like a ballroom—and what a space to host a fundraiser.”
All ages are welcome. Tickets are $55 per person and are available at the Slate Valley Museum or online at slatevalleymuseum.org.
