How to profit from a micro-audience (1): Hire a celebrity chefmain
The conductor Raffaello Morales has come up with an original solution for making post-Covd audiences pay.
He has founded a Fidelio Orchestra Cafe in Clerkenwell, nears central London and has engaged such renowned performers as Steven Isserlis, Pavel Kolesnikov, Simon Callow, Alina Ibragimova, Louis Schwitzgebel, Samson Tsoy and Charles Owen, starting on 7 July.
All concerts are followed by a dinner catered by celebrity chef and author Alan Rosenthal. In order to comply with social distancing guidelines, admission is restricted to 25 people per evening. Artists will perform the same programme for up to five nights running.
