Soprano Cheryl Warfield and tenor Randy Pradera will be the headliners this coming Tuesday, April 24, at 8 PM in the newly opened Enrico Caruso Room at Little Italy's legendary Grotta Azzurra Ristorante , located at 177 Mulberry Street on the corner of Broome Street. The performance will mark the second week of Tuesday Opera Nights at the new music venue which has been established to showcase established and emerging opera performers. Last week's premiere performance with soprano Shana Farr and tenor Vincent Ricciardi drew an SRO audience.

For those who to dine and later enjoy the music, dinner is available in the Caruso Room at 7 PM before the performance begins at 8:15 PM. Ms. Warfield and Mr. Pradera will be supported on the keyboard by David Schaefer. There is a $20 Music Charge and a no minimum policy. Reservations are suggested by calling Grotta Azzurra Ristorante at 212-925-8775.

Randy Pradera was born in Cuba and came to the United States during the Mariel Boat Lift at the age of three. He graduated from New Jersey City University and presently teaches English/ESL at the Jose Marti Freshman Academy in Union City, NJ where he also leads the school Drama Club. After taking a long break from operatic singing to concentrate on securing a stable teaching position, Randy is very excited to be back on stage. Prior engagements and roles include Tamino in The Magic Flute, Beppe in Pagliacci, Rudolfo in La Boheme and multiple seasons as soloist with the Orchestra of St. Peter's by the Sea. When not singing opera, Randy enjoys performing traditional boleros with his guitar and conga group Los Nostalgicos at various venues and for charity groups catering to the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Cheryl Warfield has performed over 15 lead roles in the standard operatic repertoire. This season, Cheryl sings the Countess with Amore Opera and Leonora in Verdi's Il Trovatore with the Manhattan Opera Repertory Ensemble. Career highlights include debuts on Broadway and at the Chicago Lyric, and a guest soloist appearance for the 2010 NFL Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in Canton, Ohio. Cheryl is also a recognized opera and concert producer and teaching artist.
