Opera in the market
Dining@Large reader mededitor sent me a link to something she described as "sorta food-related."
It is related to food in the sense that food goes with wine, and what she sent me involves a drinking song.
A drinking song sung in a food market for that matter. So really, there's no doubt it belongs here on Dining@Large.
Besides, it's lovely.
She writes: "The Opera Company of Philadelphia coordinated with the Reading Terminal in Philly for the Terminal’s Italian Heritage week.
"They staged a 'flash' performance of the drinking song from 'La Traviata.'
"Not as boring as it may sound. Have a look; I think many of the sandboxers might be closet or not-so-closet opera fans and would get a kick out of this."
