The Telluride region's newest resort, Capella, which opened February 12 to rave reviews, is a Met: Live in HD! sponsor. In support of the Palm's gala, the hotel's award-winning executive chef, Kenny Gilbert, has created a Japanese-themed appetizer buffet for the two intermissions, included in the ticket price – $40 for adults and $25 for students and children, reserved seating.
A sneak peak at Chef Kenny's menu:
Chilled Japanese Noodles with Toasted Sesame, Edamame, Bean Sprouts, Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Passion Fruit Ponzu
Shrimp Crackers and Cinnamon Wontons with Sweet Chili Duck Sauce
Lychee Fruit and Basil Satay
Coffee and Tea service throughout provided by Palm Theaters
"Capella believes in providing its guests with unique insights into local culture and in supporting the cultural economy wherever we have a presence to ensure continuing opportunities and excitement. The Palm's new opera series, The Met: Live in HD!, perfectly fits both objectives, " explained general manager John Volponi.
