A night of Peroni and Opera

So the other night I was treated to a night of Opera di Peroni, not knowing what it really was I was intrigued and figured “how bad can it be” it is after all sponsored by an Italian beer company

After arriving at the stylish event we were guided inside by the lovely staff and hitting the bar for our free beer to be enjoyed with the Italian nibbles 🙂

After a minor delay the first of three aria started with “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” from La Traviata followed by “Quando m’en vo” from La Boheme and finishing off with “Chi il sogno di Doretta” from La Rondine.

It was directed by James Hurley and all in all a wonderful evening and making a nice change from boring mind numbing TV, I hope this helps to pave the way for more events like this at The Old Fruit market in Glasgow.

    A very unusual scene for the opera :O. So you were drinking and munching for the whole show? What did they serve? I am so envious 😀

      I never been to the Opera myself so this was a gentle introduction 😀
      I’m guessing its quite different from a “real” Opera though as the performers was running around the crowd and sometimes interacting with them as well 🙂

  3. Sounds like great fun!! Bring them on in London!

  4. Opera on the bar sounds spectacular…especially if it was paired with delicious food!
