On August 24, Lee Hoiby's one-woman comic opera "Bon Appetit" appears at Kingston's new San Severia restaurant tent as part of the citywide 11-day celebration of art and culture. From cornstarch to egg whites, Ann Harvey directs soprano Lisa Jablow as Julia Child in the live baking of a real chocolate cake, with music performed by pianist Diane Huling. Following the opera, there will be a chocolate cake bake-off by local restaurants, judged by Lisa Jablow and Mayor Shayne Gallo, as well as a humorous performance by cabaret singer-songwriter Jennie Litt about being the long-lost sister of food critic Nigella Lawson. San Severia is a historic Belgian waffle tent in Midtown Kingston. Other performances at the venue this summer includes world music, classical song recitals, dance parties, and kid shows. (917) 697-6916; Kingstonfestival.org
