Another Opening, Another Show

One would think that after opening 55 operas at Wolf Trap that I would become jaded. It is simply not the case. We opened Verdi's "Un Giorno di Regno"  on Friday the 13th and I must say the old excitement is still there. We had a wonderful creative team and crew and it was a pleasure to get this one launched.

Here are some photos that Erhard Rom (Scenic Designer) took from the final dress to enjoy.

All the more reason to hail Wolf Trap. "King for a Day," the early Verdi opera that opened the company's season on Friday night, is a rare exception to the rule not only of most opera with young singers, but most opera, period: a production that gets it exactly right.-
