Mediterranean Summer Salad
Opera under the Stars – an informal get together with family and friends on a balmy summer’s evening listening to some of the world’s most famous arias in the lush parklands, which surround Sydney.
Thousands of people pack picnic baskets and blankets and head to the Domain located near the Sydney Opera House. Through the generosity of Opera Australia
, the Opera Australia Orchestra and Sydney City Council, Sydney-siders can enjoy a free sampling of some of Australia’s leading opera performers.
With picnic basket packed, I will venture with the thousands to enjoy some free culture. A sneak peak inside my basket of picnic goodies is a delicious that will be enjoyed while sipping chilled white wine and listening to La Traviata, La Bohème and Carmen. Bon Appetite.
Inside my picnic basket is this delicious its packed full of taste and goodness.
