Unless you give yourself enough time, it is not worth it to eat at the main Patina group restaurant. One does not want to have to wait for a table or cram in at the bar and then rush. Not at those prices where you can't experience the taste. They may as well put a Denny's there.

The weather was I don't remember!. I wore Slacks, dressier shoes, dress shirt and probably a vest. No tie. .

Tannhäuser

Wagner’s most voluptuous opera opens with the lyric poet Tannhäuser lost in lust with Venus, the pagan goddess of passion. Our hero appears to be living the ultimate male fantasy. Venus’s charms prove incapable of eternal enchantment, however, when Tannhäuser chooses earthly freedom over the slavery of erotic entrapment.

The musical gifts that won Tannhäuser the heart of a goddess also conquer the heart of the beatific Elisabeth, a nobleman’s innocent daughter. When he shocks the town with his bold song affirming love’s sensual delights and discloses his dalliance with Venus, he’s condemned and banished. Only the fatal love of his faithful Elisabeth can redeem him.

James Conlon conducts this company premiere in a new production directed by Ian Judge. Tannhäuser features some of opera’s most thrilling music: The famous overture, the rousing bacchanale that crescendos to a savage climax, Elisabeth’s greeting to the hall of music (“Dich, teure Halle”), Wolfram’s serenade to the evening star (“O, du mein holder Abendstern”), and the heaven-storming Pilgrim’s Chorus.

Porgy and Bess

By George Gershwin, DuBose and Dorothy Heyward and Ira Gershwin

Francesca Zambello directs a theatrically vivid production featuring Gershwin’s utterly unique score which blends blues, Tin Pan Alley and opera. Starring Kevin Short and Alfred Walker as Porgy and Indira Mahajan and Morenike Fadayomi as Bess, conducted by John DeMain. Chronicling the lives and struggles of an African-American community in South Carolina, this classic tale of love lost and found has captivated generations of both opera lovers and Broadway fans.

The Merry Widow

Franz Lehár

Susan Graham stars in one of the most beloved of all operettas. A beautiful widow’s fortune could mean all the difference for a tiny nation’s future, but a spurned lover’s arrogance threatens to get in the way. Lehár’s ravishing score dances and dazzles its way to a delightfully perfect conclusion. Director Lotfi Mansouri’s opulent production revels in romantic intrigue, splashy production numbers and timeless Viennese waltzes.
