The Stage - LA & NYC (2)

At the Music Center, we saw a strikingly staged "minimalist production by Robert Wilson" of Madama Butterfly . The soprano Michèle Crider was superb. The scene is from Act II with Suzuki where Butterfly is waiting & waiting for Pinkerton. One more of Oliver Dragojevic at Carnegie Hall. The orchestral accompaniment was by students of Juliard. Sorry about the quality of the photos - no tripods allowed (& no photos allowed either).

Oh I just dearly love a stolen photo! Hee hee.
Good job without benefit of flash, tripod or freedom to photograph!

When I went shopping for a new digital camera this is just the occasion I had in mind: the contraband photo with the tiny pocket camera. I messed up and got a much bigger camera. Now I have to save for my dream camera AND the sneaky camera. Good work! I wish I could have been there, it looks amazing.
