In early February, Winter Opera Saint Louis held its annual Royal Tea at the Ritz-Carlton St. Louis. Guests were treated to a special afternoon of tea, Champagne, scones, savory bites and sweets, as well as a silent auction. The event also gave world-class tenor Nicholas Huff and baritone Peter Kendall Clark a chance to show off their musical talents, while Sandra Geary served as accompanist. Winter Opera Saint Louis is widely known for its stellar wintertime performances.
"Our mission of producing opera in the original language and with world-class talent not only enriches our community but brings people together. The Royal Tea is a unique and fun event that brings a lighter fare to opera featuring operetta and Broadway music for all audiences.” – WOSL Board of Directors President Nancy Pillsbury Shirley
