An online, digital fundraiser (as if there's any other kind these days):

 

Quote

A digital fundraiser featuring Lee Hoiby's delightful BON APPÉTIT! This charming opera, included as part of Opera Philadelphia's digital fundraiser, showcases the beloved Julia Child and is adapted directly from one of her classic television broadcasts during which she bakes a chocolate cake. Opera Philadelphia has partnered with Houston Grand Opera to bring you a new production of this piece starring acclaimed mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton. Donations to Opera Philadelphia can be made at operaphila.org/cake

 

Julia starts around 10:30: (Jamie Barton is fab).

There was a local production of this with (iirc) Julia's niece performing the part, it was really charming and fun.  I had the gig of making chocolate cake to serve to the audience after the show.

 

So cool!
