Last night Rajan and I went to the opera -- La Boheme -- and I must say, the Sacramento Opera Company gets better and better. Luscious voices, evenly distributed across the cast,and wonderful acting that brought the story to life. I've always liked Puccini, and La Boheme is one of my favorites. I've always liked the arias and the sad love story, but this time I saw the story from a different level. Like the title, it's about the bohemian life. Four starving students, a poet, a painter, a musician, a philosopher, all making do on hopes and dreams, and passing affairs, barely able to eke out money for food. And then the poel falls deeply in love and Life happens; she has a fatal illnes; there's nothing he can do; nothing his friends can do. The reality (and poignancy) of the bohemian life. It was like seeing the story behind the story. I am still waiting to find out how to fix my signature.
Glad to see you here!
