|All the Ladies wore Monsieur Lacroix's 6" heels! Mon Dieu!|
|These *Beggars* are part of *Lohengrin*....really? Oh yes..|
|Military Uniforms? This doesn't look like Medieval Brabant....|
|Because it ISN'T....it's 1956 Hungary! (Mein Gott!) Here is the *Swan Knight* - looking more like he belongs to *The Matrix*....|
|And you might ask....where is the SWAN? Look very carefully at the top back of the Stage.... yep, that's it!|
But, thankfully, the singing and the Orchestra were DIVINE!
* Moby Dick*
(aka Robin's FAVOURITE of the Season)

|*Captain Ahab* (aka Jay Hunter Morris) and Me|
A *Moby Dick* postscript.... next year, on PBS *Great Performances*, our production will be aired! I hope some of you will tune in....it is really an extraordinary, unforgettable Opera!
|One of the Pope's *Swiss Guards*|
|*Scarpia* (Mark Delevan) and his Henchmen|
