ABC Wednesday—O is for "opera"

This picture was taken 5 years ago in the summer—
when chairs are set out at Lincoln Center,
a big screen is placed on the Metropolitan Opera
House, and people gather to enjoy filmed
performances from previous opera seasons 
(in this case, we were about to enjoy La Bohème).  
But this coming weekend, I will get to experience a live
 performance of Cosi Fan Tutte here at the Met

—conducted by James Levine and compliments of my
friend Lisa as a (belated) birthday gift.  Can't wait!

  5. I think these screens are wonderful. They make viewing so much easier. Last opera I saw was.....a long time ago....don't remember.
