We got interested in opera way back in the ‘60s, in the early days of the Opera Society of Washington. Then in the ‘90s we just really got started traveling to see operas. A favorite thing of ours is to see new operas. Whenever we see a world premiere going on somewhere, we try to go to it.
It was just a sensational production and excellent singing.
We go a lot of places — Houston, Chicago, New York — but one of the best performances I ever saw anywhere was right here at the Clarice Smith Center several years ago when we saw Tales of Hoffman. It was just a sensational production and excellent singing. So that comes to mind when we think about great experiences.
