Last February, we traveled to Los Angeles to see LA Opera’s Ghosts of Versailles. As you might imagine, our up-close-and-personal production at The Barns differs from the one we saw at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Both have their unique charms, but there’s one particular element of the LA Ghosts that we coveted…
Knowing that if we were to put a large pink elephant onstage at The Barns, we’d have to perform the entire opera on its back, we reluctantly let go of the dream. Until Patti* joined us.
(P.S. If you’re on Facebook, you can also find Patti there! www.facebook.com/pattitheelephant)
