The 20th season of Opera Theatre of the Rockies was celebrated in style by the Pikes Peak Opera League with a supper club at Patty Jewett Clubhouse.

The fundraiser leads to the highly anticipated May 10, 12 and 13 production of Verdi's much loved "Aida" at the Ent Center for the Arts.

A sold-out audience was treated to "Breaking Up is Hard to Do" through the musical ages by Lila Mori and accompanist Reggie Berg from The Broadmoor's Penrose Room.

Music traveled from Cole Porter to Paul Simon, from the Big Band era to Michael Bolton and Train.

Mori shared a bit of her own history, which includes singing with the Colorado Springs Chorale directed by Donald Jenkins, who was at the dinner. If she ever retires, she confided, singing with the Chorale again is on her bucket list. How about that, Chorale Director Peter Tuff?

Coordinators of the evening were PPOL Board President Dr. Susan Rae Jensen, Gloria Wendt and Susanne Wheeler.

The Tiemens Foundation and Wells Fargo Private Bank were sponsors.

Upcoming: A spring luncheon with singers from the "Aida" cast on May 2 at the Kissing Camels Golf Club, pikespeakoperaleague.org.
