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."

He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
