Imagine us under the stars on a tropical night with palm trees and wildlife. Yes, the bats did make a bit of noise; they seemed to be enjoying the music. I am guessing that we had an audience of about three thousand. Some ladies were dressed beautifully in evening gowns. Some audience members wore jeans.

Emma wore the most amazing gowns, like a fairytale princess. She was the image of the dazzling opera diva, except she is totally charming and relaxed. Her husband and children were tagging along. It is nice to see that family relationships can still be part of the opera world.
