Carmen in Toronto

I am avoiding the madness thats is olympic Vancouver with a trip to
Grand Cayman but with a stop over for a few days in Toronto. Looking
for things to do whilst here i found that Carmen was playing at the
Four Seasons opera house having never been to an opera before but
enjoying the music of Carmen so much so that i have the CD i thought i
should book tickets to see it.

Upon arriving in Toronto one particular thing stood out …..boy is it
cold here . With the inhabitants telling me how mild this winter has
been i am sure glad i came on a "mild winter".

I have to say i have much love for Toronto it is an awesome world
class city every bit as exciting as other world cities but with a very
canadian feel.

Back to the opera ! It was a great experiance and a great opera . I
think the Carmen had been switched because i thought the micaela was a
stronger singer. For me it being my first opera i didnt know what to
expect so i was sure happy to find that it had english sub titles. I
was amazed at the symphony and the tecnicalites of how it was all put
together. The set design was oustanding i just couldnt figure out how
the did the changes so fast especialy for the las act at the bull
fight.

Toronto rocks and real estate is cheap …..so you never know lol
