An Evening Of Opera And Songs
Last season’s “Tuscan Sunset” at the Ruddy’s Villa Fiori sold out, added on, and sold out again, so the party is being reprised with a new menu, but the same stellar setting and entertainers. The Villa, designed by the owner, has been featured in Savannah Magazine and American Dream Homes. Impressive art acquired during their careers and travels with World Bank and United Nations Assignments fill their home. As night comes on, sopranos Rebecca Flaherty and Maria Zouves, accompanied by Tim Hall, will entertain guests with favorite operatic arias and songs. You will indulge your senses—eyes, taste, and ears—with a night of delicious dining and soaring sopranos in a spectacular setting.
