One of the jewels of the city of Detroit is the Detroit Opera House. I have been fortunate enough to have attended two operas there. The first was Don Giovanni back in the spring (wonderful). The second was La Boheme last night (heart-breaking). Puccini is one of my favorite composers, with Tosca being one of my favorite operas.
Noah Stewart was Rodolfo and Grazia Doronzio was Mimi. They made for an excellent pair. The rest of the cast was fantastic, too, acting just as well as they sang. O soave fanciulla gave me the chills as it often does, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little misty-eyed at the very end.
Besides, a night out with my wife in which she wears a beautiful black dress and red heels that accentuate her gorgeousness is a great night.
