Des Moines Metro Opera presents Bon Appétit!
Enjoy a local opera based on a PBS television cooking lesson by Julia Child.
Considered to be a major American composer of the 20th century, Lee Hoiby’s Bon Appétit! premiered in 1989. Based on a PBS television cooking lesson by Julia Child, this production of Bon Appétit! was produced through a partnership between the Iowa Culinary Institute at Des Moines Area Community College and Des Moines Metro Opera. Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Joyce Castle portrays the master chef as she prepares Le Gateau au Chocolate l’Eminence Brune (a chocolate cake).
