Friday night was the opening night for the opera season and the American premier of the opera "Arizona Lady". I told you a bit about it earlier this month when I got the opportunity to visit the home of the Arizona Opera Company. You can see that post here.
My friend David is a patron of the opera company and he treated me to both the tour two weeks ago and the show Friday night. Thank you David! I loved it.
It really helped to get the story behind the opera's composer and his time spent in the United States during World War II. Knowing that history helped me to see the humor and love that went into creating such a fun opera. It was billed as his love letter to Arizona and that it was. Two or three times I wanted to sing along to big Arizona ballad. Luckily for everyone around me, I didn't.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. Take a peek inside (and out) of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
