Raise your glasses in a toast to Opera with the “radiant, vocally assured, dramatically subtle and compelling, and artistically imaginative” (Washington Post) Alyson Cambridge.

Your experience will include a mimosa welcome, delicious sit-down brunch catered by Milwaukee’s own Zilli’s, and post-performance discussion with Ms. Cambridge and Florentine Opera Company General Director William Florescu.
An Afternoon with Alyson Cambridge is sponsored by Philip Loftus.
