Cabotto’s restaurant is hosting their first “Night at the Opera” on Thursday, April 30 featuring Ottawa tenor Alain Paquette.

“We’ve done cooking classes, we’ve thought about a magic show. It’s just something to do in the area. Everybody goes out for dinner but it’s very difficult to find entertainment, something different,” says Cabotto’s owner Vince Pucci.

The show costs $75 and includes a five-course meal.  The dinner and performance will happen in Cabotto’s upstairs dining room. Paquette will sing ten songs in a 60-minute set after dessert.  Pucci is hoping to host 25-30 people.

Paquette has performed with Opera Lyra Ottawa, the University of Ottawa Choir, the Pellegrini Opera and the Notre-Dame Basilica Cathedral Choirs in Ottawa.  He will be accompanied by Jennifer Loveless on piano.

“Paquette’s a pretty talented young man,” says Pucci.

Pucci opened Cabotto’s in 1976 in the Beaverbrook Mall in Kanata, and then moved to the historic building they now call home in 2003.  The old stone house was built in 1868 as Kemp’s Tavern and is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act.

Cabotto’s presents “A Night At The Opera”, Thursday, April 30 at 6:30pm.  Five course meal + performance by tenor Alain Paquette. Cost $75/person, contact the restaurant to book in advance. More info…
