Take one hot-blooded Italian Opera Composer, a great tenor, the very best arias, and the scent of an Italian kitchen and you get A Touch of Puccini, A Taste of Pavarotti.
Luciano Pavarotti’s love of food equalled his passion for music, and on Saturday May 12th, Eagle’s Nest come alive with a fusion of Pavarotti’s favourite recipes with his best-loved Operatic arias and Neapolitan songs.
‘One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating’, said the great man himself, and that is our recipe at Eagle’s Nest, where the dinner and concert segments are interspersed so there is time to devote your attention to the beautiful music, and then to the enjoyable task of a good meal in congenial company, in the unique setting of Eagle’s Nest.
The overture begins with the maestro’s own recipe, Linguini Pavarotti, light and delicately balanced to set the mood for the lilting opening set of effervescent arias and songs. Act 1, the flavours deepen with Vitello Balsamic, answered with the passion of Puccini, his contemporaries and his rivals! Act 2 reaches a fitting crescendo with Sacripantino, a classic Genoese confection as rich and delicious as Pavarotti’s golden voice, and a perfect Finale with the most melting and romantic arias and duets.
The warm glow of the log fire, a glass of wine, and good company, and to be serenaded by the romantic and uplifting music of these great sons of Italy — this is opera for all the senses!
At $65 per person for a 3-course dinner and concert, this is an evening not to be missed. Bookings essential on +61 7 5545 2540 or by emailing us
