I have an identity problem. On the one hand I write about the international world of opera, or at least the parts that reach me. On the other I write about music in Sacramento.
My first live opera was "Aida" with Price and Franco Corelli, back when the Met went on tour to various Midwestern cities. It was in Cleveland at the old Public Auditorium, a horrible place for opera, more suited to car shows and home & garden exhibitions. I'm guessing it was 1968 or '69. nonetheless -- spectacular.
