An Operatic Shopping Trip

Shoppers at a Baltimore Whole Foods were treated to a surprise opera performance on Wednesday, when a group of singers from Washington National Opera's Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program, dressed as Whole Foods employees, suddenly burst into song. The group performed "Libiamo," Alfredo's drinking song from Verdi's Traviata. (You can also check out the Alfredo in our October production of Traviata, Dimitri Pittas, singing "Libiamo" in this video.) The whole event was to promote the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's weekend concert, featuring several of WNO's Young Artists.
