first performance was little to be desired but after the first performance everyone had such talent and wonder it was a blast

As with all of the other opera workshops and performances, yesterday's performance was very enjoyable. The vocalists' ability to sing with such range and clarity while wearing masks was astounding. The last second change in venue from Old Main may have been disappointing but the acoustics were certainly better. Looking forward to the next opera performance.
