Tickets still available for Opera in the Arboretum
Tickets are still available for Opera in the Arboretum to be held at Pearl Beach next weekend.
The event will be held from 3pm on Saturday, March 12, at the Crommelin Native Arboretum in Pearl Beach.
Opera in the Arboretum is billed as an open-air, all-weather, picnic-style annual charity event hosted by the Rotary Club of Woy Woy.
"This community event brings together a star-studded line-up of artists to perform Opera's much loved arias, duets and ensembles in the coastal rainforest setting of the Crommelin Native Arboretum," said club president Ms Julie Jones.
Singers this year will include tenor Mr Rosario La Spina, soprano Ms Jane Ede, baritone Mr Jose Carbo and soprano Ms Clarissa Spata performing arias and duets from La Boheme (Puccini), Marriage of Figaro (Mozart), Pagliacci (Leoncavallo), along with favourites such as Un bel di, The Pearl Fishers Duet and Libiamo.
"After a two-year absence due to Covid-19, we look forward to our 15th Opera in the Arboretum charity event.
"Funds raised are distributed to deserving causes, charitable organisations and Rotary projects at home and abroad.
"Since the event's inception in 2005 hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised for deserving causes, charitable organisations and Rotary humanitarian projects."
Opera in the Arboretum is the major fund raiser for the Rotary Club of Woy Woy and "a chance to promote Rotary to the community", said club president Ms Julie Jones..
"Funds raised will allow our club to donate to various local organisations."
Ticket prices range from $40 for high school students to $85 for adults.
Entry to the arboretum will be from Opal Close, Pearl Beach.
