Desserts and opera on a golf course | Kitsap Week

BREMERTON — Some of the Northwest’s most popular opera artists will sing arias and model costumes from Kitsap Opera’s collection April 29, 3 p.m. at a benefit for Kitsap Opera. Doors open at 2.

Kitsap Golf and Country Club is the venue for the Trunk Show, which includes desserts, a raffle and a silent auction. It’s called a trunk show because the artists are bringing a trunk full of costumes to wear during this special performance. While enjoying desserts, you’ll hear songs from “Rigoletto,” “Il Travatore,” “Die Fledermaus,” “La Traviata,” “Tales of Hoffmann,” “La Boheme” and “Carmen.”

The show stars Jacqueline Quirk, soprano; Victoria Chaussee, mezzo-soprano; Gino Lucchetti, tenor; and Karina Gordievich, accompanist.

Tickets are $35 per person. Call (360) 373-6531.

Quirk debuted in the 2009-10 season as Cho-Cho San in the Canton Symphony’s “Madame Butterfly,” as Marguerite in Opera Idaho’s “Faust,” and as the soprano artist in Honolulu Symphony’s “Beethoven Ninth.”  She has been engaged on the East Coast for the past year.
