Opening Night at Meadowood with Danielle de Niese and Paulo Szot
7:00 PM
The Australian-American lyric soprano Danielle de Niese, whose voice The New York Times called “seductive enough to woo gods as well as mortals,” joins the Brazilian baritone Paulo Szot for a concert on the estate's beautiful new Redwood Lawn.

An international star who made her Metropolitan Opera debut at 19 in The Marriage of Figaro, de Niese will sing arias and songs, as well as duets with Szot, who received a Tony for his portrayal of Emile De Becque in the Broadway revival of South Pacific at Lincoln Center. Star power plus a gourmet feast prepared by Meadowood's exceptional culinary team and paired with fine wines from Chateau Boswell, Williams Selyem, PlumpJack, Realm Cellars, and Domaine Carneros — Festival Napa Valley starts off with a bang.

Concert is part of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Vocal Arts Series

Presented by San Francisco Chronicle
