Opera Adventure

In pouring rain we drove downtown to the Sheraton Centre on Queen Street. There we parked and dined  exquisitely before walking next door to the Four Seasons Centre for Performing Arts. Tonight we came to experience Wagner's version of the Flying Dutchman. It is a full two and a half hour production with no intermissions. The stage setting is spectacular.I had delved deeper into the theme of the opera. Who would have thought that Pirates of the Caribbean shares a common theme of phantoms at sea? Wagner's music is haunting yet beautiful. The Canadian Opera Company has video clips on it's webpage at . If you're in Toronto you may wish to enjoy a free lunchtime concert. Just check their weekly schedule.
P.S. Today I learned to create a link. What fun Kleinste  Motte!!
