At some point last year and after a lifetime of ignoring opera as an art form, I realised I loved it. I saw operas beamed from the New York Met to the Dendy Portside (The Tales of Hoffman and The Merry Widow), saw Turandot at Sydney Opera House, Don Giovanni in Melbourne and Don Pasquale in New York @ the Met.
That twelve months went a full circle; started watching operas filmed at the Met and finished by attending one there.
I also married the person who turned me on to it all just before we went to New York too:)
And this year I have started photographing Madama Butterfly for Opera Queensland !
Kismet, it’s the nearest thing to a religious experience, and I’m blessed.
