I never really know what to expect when I walk through the stage door for the first rehearsal of a Long Beach Opera production. What surprises has Andreas dreamed up for us this time?It was no surprise to see actor Michael York. He's the star of the show.
Of course, you might not see something like this at work every day: If you squint you might be able to make out my little slice of stage (my flute case is just to the right of the red (decaf) coffee cup). This is my view. Our conductor Andreas is fabulously talented as well as a kind, patient man.

Life is good!
