On Sept. 23, Ambassador of Colombia Camilo Reyes and Gloria Ritter Reyes welcomed guests of The Washington Opera Society (WOS) for a presentation of Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore.” Guests enjoyed a glorious buffet with lobster paella before gathering for a pocket opera performance featuring internationally renowned singers under the baton of Maestro Julien Benichou. The ambassador said “music is probably the best way to provide food for our souls” and impresario Michael Reilly recalled that opera was originally produced in private homes and churches.
