The Events Company & The Wedding Studio at 224 Harrison
to throw an Engagement Party for “Figaro & Susanna”
from Syracuse Opera’s “The Marriage of Figaro” on Friday, April 12

(Syracuse, NY) Now that Mozart’s famed “Figaro” has popped the question to his “Susanna” and she’s said “yes,” there’s only one more thing to do to ensure that the Syracuse Opera production of “The Marriage of Figaro” will be the wedding of the year – throw them an Engagement Party!

The Events Company - “the producers of wow!” - and their affiliates at The Wedding Studio at 224 Harrison have teamed to throw a fun-filled Engagement Party for “Figaro and Susanna” from Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro” to benefit Syracuse Opera.

“Figaro and Susanna’s” Engagement Party will be aptly held in the Tiffany Ballroom of the Genesee Grande Hotel on Friday, April 12, 2013, from 7-9:30 p.m. Reservations are $20 per person in advance and $25 at the door. All proceeds benefit Syracuse Opera. Reservations are available by calling the Syracuse Opera Box Office at (315) 476-7372 or online at www.SyracuseOpera.com by clicking on “Purchase Tickets” then on “FIGARO & SUSANNA ENGAGEMENT PARTY/Buy Tickets.”

“Figaro & Susanna’s” Engagement Party will feature live music from both Maria DeSantis Music and from the stars of Syracuse Opera’s upcoming production of Mozart’s comic masterpiece, “The Marriage of Figaro.” The party will also include complimentary hors d’oeuvres, assorted finger foods and desserts, a champagne toast to the happy couple, engagement photos, swag bags, freebies and favors galore, as well as free parking, a cash bar and much more.

Nicole Samolis, certified special events planner and president & CEO of The Events Company, says that this is one of those special events where everyone wins. “We’re so glad that Syracuse Opera approached us to brainstorm and arrive at this novel and fun-filled cocktail party that not only promotes and benefits the Opera, but showcases what we and our vendor partners do best – create one of a kind, memorable and fun events.”

Those generous Vendor Partners include: Bride Design, Genesee Grande Hotel, Hank Parker’s Party and Tent Rentals, Maria DeSantis Music, Meghan Thomas Photography, Ormond Entertainment, Spinnaker Custom Products, Sweet Fortune Cookies, Sweet Indulgence Dessert Catering, Syracuse Opera, Syracuse Soapworks, The Events Company, The Floral Gardens, The Speach Family Candy Shoppe and Video Network, Inc.

Catherine Wolff, Syracuse Opera general & artistic director, is extremely grateful to The Events Company and The Wedding Studio at 224 Harrison for helping to create the perfect partnership to complement Syracuse Opera’s CNY Mozart Festival celebrating “The Marriage of Figaro” on April 26 & 28. In addition to “Figaro & Susanna’s” Engagement Party and “The Marriage of Figaro,” the CNY Mozart Festival also features the Onondaga Historical Association’s “Love & Marriage” exhibition now through April 28, and a special performance presented by the Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music in collaboration with Syracuse University featuring The Harlem Quartet on April 19 in Crouse College’s Setnor Auditorium.

Douglas Kinney Frost, Syracuse Opera director of music and conductor for “The Marriage of Figaro,” says that Syracuse Opera has assembled a “dream cast” for this production. Kinney Frost states, “‘The Marriage of Figaro’ is widely known as Mozart’s ‘perfect opera,’ and this production will star several of Syracuse Opera’s favorite artists in leading roles. I guarantee this charming farce will have you cheering from your seats and grinning from ear to ear.”

Kinney Frost will introduce Engagement Party guests to many of the production’s principal artists including the couple of the hour, “Figaro,” sung by bass-baritone Thomas Forde, who is making his Syracuse Opera debut, and “Susanna,” sung by returning soprano Amanda Pabyan.
