My friend invited me to see the Opera at the Arsht Center in downtown Miami. I had not gone for years and she had a wonderful ticket in the orchestra section where we heard a fantasticscore of music for the opera "Norma". I did not know much about this but was so pleased it was a fantastic performance with very strong voices and the lead Norma played by Mary Elizabeth Williams was incredible. Her range and strength and stamina was unforgettable. The nice part about this was before the opera we are given an overview of it, if you arrive early at 7 and then after the performance we are invited to stay and talk with some of the actors. It found it so exciting and enlightening. Norma was quick moving, a love triangle tragedy, but very well done by all. Can't wait to see other operas as well. The conductor Anthony Barrese, was very passionate and made the music soar...an added plus. A wonderful night out!
