PALMETTO OPERA AT THE STATE FAIR
Saturday, October 15, 2016
Fair- goers will be treated to a sampling of opera and Broadway’s greatest hits when they visit the Cantey Building’s art and floral exhibits on October 15th. The Palmetto Opera will present A Taste of Opera, 20 minutes of world favorites from Broadway and opera performed by Palmetto Opera singers from the Midlands. Three performances, at 5:00 pm, 6:00 pm, and 7:00 pm, will be held at the Cantey Building and are free to the public.
Palmetto Opera singers will include Diana Amos, Jacob Rothman, Madaline Beitel, and accompanist Claudio Olivera.
According to SC State Fair officials, this is the first time opera has ever been on their event menu. Nancy Smith, the State Fair’s assistant manager, said: “We are pleased to add yet another dimension to our fair- goers experience. The SC State Fair has one of the finest art shows on the East Coast and our partnership with The Palmetto Opera is a perfect “ticket” for increasing awareness of arts. We encourage everyone to come and get a “Taste of Opera” and more at the South Carolina State Fair. You may be a bit surprised, but we know you will be pleased…and hopefully want more.”
