A Photo Essay of Oman

A Photo Essay of Oman

Last weekend, I was incredibly fortunate to make a trip to Muscat, Oman! [Don’t worry, all you wonderful PBO donors, this trip was not financed by PBO….your contributions go directly onto our stage, and are responsible for the high artistic and production values of our performances!] I was instead invited by the Royal Opera House […]

NYC Dinner & Meetings Oct 18-20

This post is now already 2 weeks old, and I’m already on my next trip, but I thought I would still post it, prompted by the lovely Virginia, who I met at our OPERA:Deconstructed Event. High in the Sky, Oct 21, 2012: The past 4 days took me to New York for our Annual Board […]



Thanks to Delta miles and good friends in Washington, I decided to make a quick trip to WNO’s Season Opening Night performance of ANNA BOLENA. What was intended to be an easy flight via Atlanta with just enough time in Washington to get ready for the Black Tie evening, turned into a ‘fun-filled’ day of […]

Brundibar @ Palm Beach Opera & Lucia di Lammermoor @The Dallas Opera

An amazing take off in the midst of a thick grey soup of fog at DFW, only to punch through the fog ceiling within seconds of take off to be immersed in sunlight, overlooking a silvery moonscape-like layer of fog and clouds, with the occasional tall building from the Dallas skyline sticking out its head, […]

Cincinnati – WPB – NYC

What an inspiring week! Last Saturday, I made a quick trip to Cincinnati to reconnect with Evans Mirageas and to see Cincinnati Opera’s production of Eugene Onegin. The flight was smooth, the drive from airport to downtown especially remarkable for the amazingly bright and vivid shades of green on trees and bushes, due to the […]

Here’s another example to let you in on some of the daily activities: BTW, this ‘past-post’ comes to you courtesy of Delta Airlines and gogoinflight…cool, no? NEW YORK, OCTOBER 7 – 10, 2010 ‘Primary reason’ for the trip to […]

Washington DC

It’s a beautiful, sunny morning over Reagan National airport, I’m on my way back to Palm Beach after a weekend of opera in DC. Friday evening, David and I attended the NEA/OA Opera Honor Awards Ceremony, which was a great affair. It was nice to reconnect with the honorees, some of whom have recently been […]

Santa Fe Opera Festival 2010

July and August are Santa Fe Opera months, and I was fortunate to spend several days at the Festival again this summer. Flying into Albuquerque is a joy, with sweeping views of the mountain ranges in New Mexico especially just before touching down.  The one-hour drive to Santa Fe brings the mountains in closer range, […]

Glimmerglass Opera July 2010

After a nice drive through the hills of New York State, I arrived last night in Cooperstown for 2 days at the Glimmerglass Opera. The stay was off to a great start with a delicious meal on the terrace of the Otesaga Resort Hotel overlooking the lake with Gladys Benenson, member of the Palm Beach Opera Board […]

This post too is long overdue, but I’ll addd it unchanged… Last weekend included a special treat and quick personal trip to enjoy the 90th Anniversary Gala at the Cincinnati Opera. Quick aside – For those of you who don’t know me, I am a plane geek. I have always loved planes, used to study […]
