Bravissimo! Opera Gala

Celebrating Baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky

On Thursday, April 1, 2010 Carnegie Hall proudly presented baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky and soprano Sondra Radvanovsky at its inaugural Bravissimo! Opera Gala. After an intimate dinner hosted by Carnegie Hall trustee and Gala Chair Ann Ziff, and trustees Martina Arroyo and Marilyn Horne, Mr. Hvorostovsky and Ms. Radvanovsky entranced the audience with arias and duets by Rossini, Verdi, Dvořák, and Tchaikovsky. Following the concert, the artists joined Gala patrons in the Rohatyn Room for an exclusive dessert reception. All funds raised directly support Carnegie Hall’s artistic and education programming.
