    Madam Butterfly

    I get to help out with a production of Madam Butterfly by doing supertitles for the opera. They are actually doing it in Modern American English; with some slight differences as far as the setting and where it takes place. It's going fabulous! Although, I must say Butterfly's...

    I Think She Is Ok

    Although I would not say I love Opera. I do admire her philanthropic nature. And she is incredibly rich too so I probably would tell her I love her, then marry her, get divorced, and then sit back and enjoy the palimony

    My Life And Loves

    My life had taken a weird turn, and I suddenly found myself being pulled into a relationship I had sworn off -- the intense affair I'd had years ago was threatening to breach the protective walls I'd put up. I had a marriage and my family to consider, a business, friends in...

    Highlights Or The Whole Thing?

    Werther (pronounced Verter)

    I saw Massenet's Werther at the Lyric Opera of Chicago last night. My first Massenet opera, however, sort of indifferent about the opera. That does not mean I didn't like it, but definitely did not move me. I have been an avid opera goer only since last year and only because...

    Madama Butterfly

    Watching 'Cardiff Singer of the World', I have to go back to the greatest of them all, Maria Callas, a woman whose life was an opera in itself. Glorious.

    I just heard the most lovely rendition of "Je

    vieux vivre" from Romeo and Juliet by Mady Mesple, a french Opera Singer. It was the 1993 remastered version, but goodness, it was completely lovely to listen to. I would seriously suggest giving it a listen!

    Vitas is such an amazing man. He is so warm and kind-hearted. He loves his wife and daughter very much. I was beginning to think men like him were mythical beings. He is so warm and full of light that I smile just looking at him. I think he is very attractive, sure. But...

    Don Giovanni

    Maria Callas and Placido Domingo

    i feel that opera singing goes far beyond the human realm, especially when one listens to great voices such as maria callas, placido domingo, kiri te kanawa.. and my favorite opera is la traviata ( i know almost all the libretto by heart), and Tosca (which is full of ...
