Brava, Rebecca!

I can't remember when the Met WASN'T in my life, as we listened to Milton Cross's live Saturday matinee radio broadcasts -- which started at 10:30 AM Pacific Time -- when I was a child.

Alas, we never got to see the Met at Lincoln Center, but did attend several performances at Wolf Trap Farm Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna, VA., when we lived in the DC area in the 1970s, back when the Met (and NYC Opera) still toured.

And of course we've watched Met performances for decades on PBS.

P.S. Oops, I forgot to mention that for about a dozen years, Farmboy Husband -- whom I turned on to opera after our marriage! -- was a supernumerary with our regional opera company (and I was even in one opera with him, Boito's "Mefistofele," directed by Tito Capobianco).

We quickly discovered that the amount of work required to mount a production is unbelievable even for extras, let alone for singers, dancers, orchestra, and the huge numbers of off-stage staff.


What a wonderful career Rebecca. I’ve enjoyed following you on IG. Such a rich and interesting life you’ve led. Now to meet Corey in person!


Wishing you the best in this new chapter of your life, Rebecca!


OH COREY!!!!! I am way behind on my blog reading and I had NO IDEA that you had posted this!!! Now I am teary all over again! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the well wishes. And now for new adventures!

I just got home from traveling with Serenades Choral Travel (an aside: if you are a choral singer and love to travel, you really should check this group out, it's my second year and we really had fun) to Puglia, Italy and now my husband and I are preparing to go to Vienna to cat-sit for a friend. THEN we will go to the South of France for a month, and I will be making a bee-line to see Corey!! In-between we will be spending as much time as we can with our two grandsons, who live just north of us in the Hudson Valley of New York.

Retirement is going to be fun!!!
