"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Opera Photos

Whew!  I am surfacing for a moment to share some photos from our first two productions of the Season.  Today is the final performance of *Rigoletto*, last night was the opening performance of *i Capuleti e i Montecchi*.  Tomorrow, the Piano Dress Rehearsal of what I think may be my favourite of the season - *Moby Dick*


by Giuseppe Verdi

With our WONDERFUL Maestro Nikki!

i Capuletti e i Montecchi

Hurried photos - as it was Opening Night!

The *infamous* 6" heels the Supers have to wear and run down many stairs in!  Mon Dieu!

Opening Night Bracelets given to all the cast - and sweetly - including one for me - in purple!  *Toi, Toi, Toi*.  (The Opera equivalent of *Break a Leg*.)

I hope you enjoyed the backstage tour...more to come soon!
