Cultural model between entertainment and classics.

Canned music is staged as an opera with a buffet in several courses and with special table scenery. The tape recorder placed in the midst of partly painted, partly edible decoration pieces on tables with wheels, plays excerpts from operas by Giuseppe Verdi. One tabel after the other is rolled in among the guests, listened to, eaten up. One table = one act = one course = 20 minutes, entire lenght about 2 hours. "Pronto Verdi" was performed 5 times with about 400 participants at Prodomo, Vienna.
