I came to appreciate opera rather late but I have always been a ballet fan. However I had gone to some of the more popular or well-known operas over the years. I celebrated the 60th anniversary of the WA Ballet Company in style at a cocktail party at the Parmelia Hotel. Then I decided to get more serious about opera and subscribe to the WA Opera seasons as well as the ballet. You can imagine my delight when I booked for Bellini’s ‘LA SONNAMBULA’ and when the night came found I was in the front row right behind the conductor, Richard Mills. What a treat!
Congratulations to the WA Opera on its 50th anniversary.
