On Wednesday, March 24, 2010, shoppers at Whole Foods Market in Harbor East Baltimore received an unusual surprise. Singers from Washington National Opera's (WNO) Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program disguised as Whole Foods employees were embedded throughout the store.
All of a sudden, the introduction to Giuseppe Verdi's "Libiamo" or (Drinking Song) from La Traviata blasted over the loudspeaker. Then those same "employees" broke into song and performed the entire opera scene for confused and amused Whole Foods customers.
This non-traditional performance is part of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's ongoing mission to make classical music more accessible. The BSO and WNO thank Whole Foods Markets for partnering for this event.
