After the cocktails and dinner there was a gala concert of Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra, honoring the great American composer’s centennial year. The superb cast was headlined by City Opera favorite Lauren Flanigan as Cleopatra, debuting baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Antony and rising dramatic tenor Simon O’Neill as Caesar.
Dinner chairs included Penelope and John Biggs, Brooke Hayward Duchin and Lorry and Mark Newhouse.
