7-25-15 The Madison Opera
The show began at 8, we arrived by 5 because we knew even then a lot of people come to this. We did get a good spot just off-center. The lawn and hill behind us looked like this just before the show.
Here is the program. click to enlarge.
The Madison Opera also provided a Guide on their website giving more details about the music and give you a chance to listen to the music they played. Before the show they were selling light sticks, and you will soon see why.
First, let me introduce the talented soloists.
After intermission is has become quite dark outside. You can see people’s light sticks begin to dot the hillside with light. The moon is photobombing the scene too, contributing its own light.
And now the finale, “It’s a Grand Night for Singing” (State Fair) with full audience participation!
Wow! What an exciting evening with 16,000 other enthusiasts of Madison’s fine art scene. We hope to come back next year, it will be on July 23, 2016. This will be their big 15th Anniversary celebration.
