Nickel City Opera West Gala Dinner
March 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$125
Nickel City Opera West will host a sneak peek of the events planned for the Coachella Valley at the Inaugural Gala Dinner March 14th with a 4 course menu by Chef Ernie of Mario’s Italian Cafe. Opera arias will be presented throughout the evening from Metropolitan Opera singer and Artistic Director Valerian Ruminski and his opera colleagues. Nickel City Opera West was formed to bring opera to Palm Springs and communities who do not have a permanent opera company. Based in Buffalo, NY, Nickel City Opera has been bringing fully staged operas, concerts and events to the community as a Summer Festival since 2009. As a winter snowbird satellite, NCO West hopes to bring opera fans to Palm Springs.
Since 1972, Mario’s Italian Cafe have established their presence within the local community as an active fundraiser for the Athletic Sponsor of Coachella Valley High Schools, The American Cancer Society, the American Red Cross, Desert Arc, Relay for Life, Italian Festival and Make A Wish donating 100% of over 8,000 meals provided annually to help these groups raise money for their causes. NCO West is honored to partner with Chef Ernie for a spectacular evening. Join us.
