Tucson Music Hall was the site for the Arizona Opera Company's 45th Anniversary celebration - the Sapphire Gala. Featuring international superstar Frederica Von Stade, the performance was a tribute to many of the company's best-loved operas and included solos and duets from the Marriage of Figaro, the Pearl Fishers, Candide, La Boheme, and more. Wonderful orchestral and choristers performance as well! Repeat performances in Phoenix this coming weekend.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
