Celebrating fine cuisine and opera, mezzo soprano Monika Voysey and Chef Marc Wassung present their latest ‘Sing for your Supper’ soiree at the gracious Welgemeend Manor House, Gardens, Cape Town on 28 November 2015 at 7pm. All the best ingredients of passion and song make up this Italian themed evening.
A selection of the greatest Italian arias and songs by Mozart, Donizetti, Verdi, Rossini and Tosti will be performed by Monika Voysey and tenor Siphesihle Mdena accompanied by Kurt Haupt.
The evening begins at 7pm with bubbly and canapes. Shortly after, the first half of the concert begins. Thereafter a buffet dinner is served, plates are cleared and the second half of the programme performed. Dessert and coffee finish the evening. Wine and drinks are on sale.
Says Monika: ‘It’s been my ideal as an opera singer to create opportunities for the public where opera is made more accessible. This is what brought me to start up the company ‘Sing for Your Supper’ with my husband Marc Wassung.
‘Each song is briefly introduced so that the audience has an understanding of the opera and characters we are singing about. They are often lively, fun, sexy, romantic, emotional or dramatic.’
Marc adds that the menu is plentiful, fresh and vibrant and includes a variety of Italian dishes such as: Prosciutto and melon, Beef carpaccio served with rocket and parmesan, Melanzane, Linguini putanesca, Porcini risotto and Pear and ricotta tortellini. Dessert is Home-made chocolate and amaretti gelato.
The price for the evening is R350 per person inclusive of the buffet, bubbly and anti-pasti on arrival. To make a reservation call 076 423 8191 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
