Great Barrington, MA: What better way to celebrate the season of love than relishing Natalie Dessay's performance of Violetta in Verdi's "La Traviata," paired with the soulful delicacies of Fiori Restaurant's northern Italian cuisine? 

Life is folly, and only pleasure counts. After spending the afternoon at one of the country's oldest theatres, stroll hand-in-hand to Fiori and explore the offerings of Chef Alex Feldman.

Begin your meal with the legendary Prosciutto di Parma, a classic salumi of Verdi's home region. 

An excellent Primi: Tagliatelle con i Funghi, a pasta of Emilia, celebrates the finezza and organic beauty of northern Italian dining.

Secondi: Loin of pork and rosemary-glazed carrots to enjoy slowly and with relish. 

Dolci: Choose from a selection of torti, gelati, and other rich deserts. The Cannoli al Ricotta suits the traditional tastes, but Violetta herself would indulge in the lusty Strawberry-Bourbon Milkshake.
