Washington East Opera

I just got home from a performance of the Barber of Seville. It was superbly done and a true joy. A mixture of excellent music and broad slap-stick that even kept the 5-year-old in the row in front of me enthralled. One of the singers teaches at a local middle school and her young students were out in force making sure she got her fair share of applause and whoops. Right here in River City no less.

Kudos to you for showing your child the wonders and excitement of opera. I received my "indoctrination" from my unmarried aunt, with whom I used to stay on weekends. We spent many Saturday afternoons baking pastry or playing cards while listening to the Texaco Met opera broadcasts on the radio -- and no, I'm not gay. LOL.
