Off to See Lucia Palmieri Perform in Central Park
Members of the Westport-based “Lucia Palmieri Fan Club” got together for a meal today at Mario’s Place in the Saugatuck area before more than 35 of them traveled together to New York’s Central Park for tonight’s performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Il Trovatore” in which Westporter Palmieri, a seasoned soprano, portrayed the character Ines in the four-act opera. Seated with Lucia’s mother, Lynda Palmieri (c), were (l-r): Joe Valiante, godfather; The Rev. Frank McGrath; Joe Delia, Lucia’s great uncle, and Beverly Valiante, godmother. Lucia Palmieri, in a telephone interview, expressed her gratitude for the large Westport turnout. “My family is so generous and loving,” she said. “I feel like the most loved person on the planet.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
