"Opera in the Vineyard has always been a popular LVO event that has created a wonderful community of music lovers," said Raquel Holt, event co-chairwoman and LVO founder and board member.
The summer Opera in the Vineyard will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m., Sunday, July 25; the fall event will take place 5:30-8:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 12.
"After having to cancel these events in 2020, we are so excited that we can now come together again to enjoy unique performances of opera arias, show tunes and maybe even a little cabaret," Holt said. "You will not want to miss it."
The July event features three of the favorite performers of Livermore Valley Opera: tenor Alex Boyer, baritone Eugene Brancoveanu and soprano Shawnette Sulker, with mezzo soprano Silvie Jensen making her debut with the opera. Accompanying the performers is pianist and music director Alexander Katsman.
Performers for the fall event will be announced in the coming months.
"It is always wonderful to see our guests enjoying themselves in an informal, casual event as they listen to beautiful arias being performed by LVO's favorite and talented singers," Holt added. "Our guests take out a spread of delectable culinary delights to share, and to hear the clinking of wine glasses as they happily make a toast to each other is a delight to see."
Once again, the program will include the popular "Arias a la carte" when guests can purchase songs from a "menu of delectable arias" for the singers to perform at their table.
Ticket are for sale at www.LVOpera.com. Individual seats at a table are $65 each. Complete tables of eight may be purchased for $475 or tables of six for $350 for priority seating. Guests are encouraged to carpool.
