Opening Night Gala at Meadowood with Danielle de Niese and Lucas Meachem
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 American baritone Lucas Meachem for a concert on the estate's beautiful new Redwood Fairway.

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 Meachem, who has been praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for his “fluent, lyrical phrasing,” and who was named the San Francisco Opera’s 2016 Emerging Star of the Year. Star power, a gourmet feast prepared by Meadowood’s exceptional culinary team, and Napa Valley's finest wines – Festival Napa Valley starts off with a bang.

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