Thank you to all 180 of you who came to the The Litchfield Hills Food, Wine and Opera Gala - A Musical Feast! last night. It was a stunning success ! We were wined and dined and serenaded by some of Connecticut's best chefs and several operatic soloists from Opera Brooklyn, as well as musical surprises galore ! To the Gala Committee, I cannot thank you enough for your splendid and tireless work, to make every aspect of the Gala achieve the same level of artistic and culinary excellence that we enjoyed last night. To paraphrase Prosepero in Shakespeare's The Tempest " You are such stuff as dreams are made on..." Bravi ! Vincent de Luise MD President Connecticut Summer Opera Foundation
