Opera Columbus {30 Before 30}

Friends, I am SO behind on my 30 before 30 list... only a few months left to go!! Yikes.

I did manage to knock one off this weekend though: Go to an opera. The lovely Laura and I ventured to Opera Columbus to see La Voix Humaine and Pagliacci. Each were one-act operas, tied together with an intermission.

The set for La Voix Humaine

The leading soprano, Camille Zamora, was wonderful. The entire first opera was JUST HER on stage, singing, for 45-minutes. In French. (There were surtitles, no worries.) THEN she had the stamina to turn around and star in the second opera, in Italian, along with a rather large and talented cast. She definitely lived up to the hype.

So as you can see on my list, I still have many items to go, many of which are a bit unlikely to happen at this point…but I’ll keep you posted as I work through them this summer.
