This summer the Ger-Nis Summer Social Club is taking it to the park for some opera. We are excited to soak up the view with fellow foodies, getting a little spoiled with some of the best opera singers in the world within the confines of our own backyard! The Metropolitan Opera is presenting a summer recital as part of Summer Stage here in Brooklyn with the idyllic dusk in Manhattan as our backdrop. This summer’s Brooklyn Bridge Park’s recital features Met Stars Angela Meade (soprano) and Jennifer Johnson Cano (mezzo-soprano) and Dimitri Pittas (tenor) accompanied by pianist Bradley Moore. We nest alfresco in the park part of our Ger-Nis social circle, absorbing the sweet sounds of these flooring voices and revel in our the marvel of our city, wondering why anyone would leave a place like this in summer? We will dine on fresh, local fare made brilliant in Italian antipasti, inspired by Nissa’s summer trip to Italy and sip on classic Ger-Nis herbal lemony iced teas (maybe we can even accidentally spike it!) Let’s show these high rollers how we social clubbers do opera, with more beauty and class than you could get in a theatre, alfresco, amazingly tasty grub at our disposal and, of course, with the glorious sounds of some of the best opera talents, all while we sit viewing the iconic, ever picture ready Brooklyn Bridge. What could be better on a Wednesday summer night?
