Remembering great moments…
Princeton Friends of Opera honored Boheme Opera NJ on May 14, 2016 with “Princeton Strikes Gold” featuring the theme of The Golden Age of Opera, and a quartet of outstanding Boheme Opera soloists: soprano Valerie Bernhardt, mezzo Ryu-Kyung Kim, tenor Raul Melo and baritone Eric Dubin, accompanied by Boheme Managing Director, pianist Sandra Milstein-Pucciatti. The event took place at the exquisite Princeton home of well-known author/historian Michael Curtis and noted photographer/artist Judith Brodsky. With added special PowerPoint presentations and a theme-related feast, this was a glorious tribute to opera and the community that treasures the art form.
