Bon Appétit!
Opera Santa Barbara pays musical homage to local treasure and national icon Julia Child in composer Lee Hoiby’s Bon Appétit! The delicious one act opera takes a classic episode of Child’s popular television show and sets it to music. Mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook stars as the flamboyant master chef, teaching the makings of a classic French chocolate cake – Le Gâteau au Chocolat L’Éminence Brune. Audiences will get to enjoy a bite of The French Chef’s cake as Ms. Cook transforms back into herself and completes the afternoon with a performance of composer Jake Heggie’s Statuesque, a song cycle that breathes life into the five great statues including Picasso’s “Bust of Marie-Thérèse” and Giacometti’s “Winged Victory.” One performance only: don’t miss your chance to enjoy some Baking With Julia!
