Beyond the Vines...Into the Community

Mary Queen of Scots
October 18, 20, and 22
Piedmont Opera

New to the Piedmont Opera repertory and making its NC professional debut!

Freedom. After 18 years of being held prisoner by Queen Elizabeth, her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots breathes fresh air. Believing herself to be the true heir to the throne, Mary has been imprisoned first for plotting against her cousin, and ultimately for attempting to murder her. This day of freedom turns to condemnation as these empowered women have a momentous meeting.

Raffaldini Vineyards is the wine sponsor of Piedmont Opera and a proud supporter of the arts. 


Join us for a special evening of food, fun, and thrilling entertainment to support Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC.

Second Harvest has thrown down the gauntlet and challenged local food fanatics to match wits with our Providence Culinary team in a one-of-a-kind foodie throwdown. But winning will take more than culinary know-how. Keep your friends close, but your opponents closer... we're turning up the heat! 

Raffaldini Vineyards is committed to help those in need in our community and proud to be the wine sponsor of Forklift.
