Rossini Festival Set for April 19

Posted: 04/01/2008
Knoxville Opera's 2008 Rossini Festival Italian Street Fair is scheduled for Saturday, April 19 from noon to 9 p.m. on Gay Street and Market Square in downtown Knoxville. 
 
The festival combines world class opera performances, art exhibitions, wine tasting, and a wide variety of other community events with a vibrant Italian Street Fair on April 19th, from noon to 9pm, in which Knoxville’s Gay Street is transformed from a busy downtown thoroughfare to a colorful European festival with three stages featuring a range of entertainment options, an upscale Artisan’s Market, the smells and tastes of authentic Mediterranean foods and beverages, and a special children’s area with entertainment, fun and games.

This year's festival features performances of Tosca at the Tennessee Theatre. For more information, call the Knoxville Opera at 865-524-0795 or visit www.knoxvilleopera.com/rossini.
