Popera! gives a sensual dining experience like no other

Posted by Drake, March 21, 2016

BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! It didn't take long for dinner guests to spring to a standing ovation at Saturday night's Popera!, our regular event at Drake One Fifty with members of the Canadian Opera Company's Ensemble Studio.

Before settling in for a sumptuous three-course dinner, guests were treated to an intimate performance from COC rising stars, Aviva Fortunata and Andrew Haji, accompanied by pianist Hyejin Kwon. We watched in amazement as Aviva hit the high notes of Giacomo Puccini's Turnadot.

"Encore!" yelled a woman at a nearby table. To be so close to the performers was both mesmerizing and invigorating; opera binoculars were not required for this concert! It was an exquisite way to kick off a beautiful dinner and a different way to do Saturday night.

Watch the performance and stay tuned for our May 7th Popera!: a sensual dining experience like no other.
