Tickets on sale for Cabaret with Kabaretti

By Staff | Feb 20, 2020

Music lovers will have an opportunity to catch an international conductor here in Cape Coral next month before he begins his wordwide tour.

Nir Kabaretti will be featured at Cabaret with Kabaretti on Thursday, March 5.

Tickets are on sale now.

“He (Nir Kabaretti) is in phenomenal demand around the planet,” Southwest Florida Symphony Executive Director Amy Ginsburg said. “His final concert here is in May and that is it. He goes to Europe and then the Middle East. He probably won’t return to Florida for a while. It’s almost a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity unless you follow him to another country.”

Cabaret with Kabaretti featuring Lisa Vroman will take place at 7:30 p.m. March 5 at Cape Cabaret, 4725 Vincennes Blvd.

“I have lived there for 40 years,” she said of Cape Coral. “There has been a real arts and culture vacuum there until the last five years. We would like to participate in the growth at a lovely place like Cape Cabaret.”

Tickets, which includes the performance, a full gourmet dinner, wine, dessert and a champagne toast to close the evening, are $159 per person or a table of eight for $1,250. Tickets can be purchased by calling (239) 418-1500, or by visiting www.swflso.org.

Tickets must be purchased a week in advance, so everyone is properly accommodated.

The Southwest Florida Symphony is now in its 59th season under the direction of their fifth music director, Kabaretti, who is in his final season with the Southwest Florida Symphony. The symphony, formerly named the Fort Myers Symphony, was established by a piano teacher, who had a little background of conducting with 24 people. She said every time they have brought on a new conductor the number of performances has grown, as well as the creative vision evolving.

“We were looking for ways to celebrate his stellar tenure here. He has had phenomenal artistic strides,” Ginsburg said of Kabaretti. “He has just brought it to new heights.”

In addition to the special menu, she said Kabaretti has invited a major Broadway force, Vroman, to share the stage with him and the orchestra.

“If you have never seen them perform together it is really magic. It is like they have known each other for a million years,” she said. “She (Vroman) was the lead for Phantom of the Opera for almost a decade on Broadway.”
