Kitsap Opera’s fall fundraising event is Sunday

Show goes from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Kitsap Golf & Country Club in Bremerton

Kitsap Opera is set to showcase its fall fundraising event, “An Afternoon in the Vienna Woods,” from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Kitsap Golf & Country Club in Bremerton.

Event organizers describe the event as an afternoon of Viennese opera and buffet with a no-host bar. Costume scenes from “The Merry Widow” by Franz Lehar and “Die Fledermaus” by Johann Strauss, as well as selections from Mozart’s “Magic Flute,” will be featured.

The ensemble includes baritone Micah Parker, who was last featured by Kitsap Opera as the Toreador in “Carmen.” A newcomer to the group is coloratura soprano Erin English, who will kick off the show with the “Queen of the Night” aria. Lyric soprano Sara Reynolds will also be on hand to perform.

The scene is produced by Leone Cottrell-Adkins, while Dennis South, found of C-stock, will conduct the stage directing. Jolene Dalton Gaily of Port Angeles is the accompanist, with Jack Lake on percussion. A small chorus rounds out the complete ensemble.

A silent auction will be held to benefit Kitsap Opera and its 2019-2020 season. Tickets are $55 per person. Call 360-871-4061 for more information and reservations.
