Primit de la amicul Octav Nour de peste Ocean! .... Sa mai vorbeasca cineva de aroganta americana!
On Saturday, April 24th, over 30 members of the
Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and principal cast members from the
upcoming production of La Traviata converged on the Reading Terminal Market
Italian Festival. Wearing street clothes and blending in with the crowd,
the artists swung into action after the first orchestral strains of the famed
"Brindisi" were piped through the market, giving a rousing, surprise performance for
hundreds of delighted onlookers who were there to enjoy the Italian delicacies
and the everyday treats that the Reading Terminal Market has to offer.
The four-minute piece won a thunderous ovation that included both laughter and tears from the audience.
