Opera director Francesca Zambello is as comfortable on the world’s largest stages as she is in a myriad of home kitchens around the world.
The famed Washington National Opera Artistic Director splits her time between staging productions for Washington National Opera, such as this year’s acclaimed Americanized Ring Cycle and the Glimmerglass Festival where she is its artistic head and heart. She manages to find time to answer the call to direct in the some of the world’s most famed opera houses.
Wherever she lands, she heads to the kitchen, cooking her personal delicious recipes which she shares on her blog ‘Francesca’s Traveling iPad.’
This year, Francesca is gifting all DC Theatre Scene readers with her comfort food recipe for Roasted Winter Smashed Vegetables, perfect as a follow up dinner to those large holidays meals.
While you don’t have to donate to DC Theatre Scene to receive Francesca’s gift, it is her hope and ours that you will consider it.
