Opera everywhere?

La Traviata at the Valencia Market
November 13, 2009

Recently and elsewhere I have written some rather shallow remarks about an opera as a dead art form. I want to bark them off! The Velencia Market La Traviatta event looks so wonderful that it adds faith in the human spirit and creativity.

Perhaps the only deadness in anything is its form and not its spirit. The spirit of an artistic expression, like opera for example, can always be updated, humanized and presented as a joyful inspiration. (Or a relevant statement of another emotional and conceptual meaning.)

So let's sing! Let's break the barriers between storytelling ways of the past and the demands of the present.
