The thirty-four people
who attended the Inn at Crystal Lakes final Opera Dinner
for this season, were thrilled with the performances, the food,
the joviality, and the ambience. Pianist Cassandra Marsh played
beautifully the whole evening long, sometimes joining in with
the singing as well. The singers - Mary Bastoni, Vanessa Schukis,
and Tim Ostendorf - did a fantastic job from full-on opera tunes,
to operettas, to musicals, and in the second half, a whole score
from the popular musical Hello, Dolly! The audience
was enchanted by the camaraderie of the musicians, the poignant
songs, and then the extremely humorous ditties spread throughout
the evening. What a joyous evening for us all. I chose the Cream
of Onion Soup, the BLT salad, the Chicken Piccata, and the Opera
Cake. Everything was outstanding and simply delicious. Many thanks
to Bobby Barker in the kitchen and his staff, and to the waitstaff,
Aimee, Robin, and Catherine. BRAVO!

her massage work, and now it houses NH and EVS memorabilia. Come
