Knoxville Opera’s 13th annual Rossini Festival was great hit. The perfect weather guaranteed a huge attendance during the ten-hour street fair. Classic Hits 93.1 WNOX was the radio sponsor for the event.
The festival featured five stages with entertainment. There was a choral stage, an opera stage, an instrumental stage, a roots music stage and a dance stage. I introduced a few of the bands on the instrumental stage as well as GO! Contemporary Dance Works on the dance stage.
The stars of Norma sang the amazing trio piece that ends Act II. During their performance, Mayor Madeline Rogero took photos and video from her perspective on the stage. She is obviously a fan of the arts.
