A Night at the (LA) Opera

Cast of Rigoletto - Los Angeles Opera - 5 Dec 2010
More like a superb afternoon at the opera, from the cheap seats in the upper balcony. The singers were just wonderful - especially George Gagnidze in the title role, Sarah Coburn as Gilda (such an exquisite voice from a pettite, pretty woman), and Gianluca Terranova as Duke of Mantua (dashing enough to almost understand why every woman the Duke courts falls totally in love with him).
To add to the experience, the sets with the clean lines and lighting of bright, primary colors, were a real visual treat (scenery by Michael Yeargan and lighting by Mark McCullough).

Sounds terrific. Your photo shows the set lighting nicely, and I like the moment you chose: the ensemble taking bows.
