There was never a gala like this. Due to the wonders of modern computers, people from all over the world have gathered in their homes to make and enjoy music. The sound wasn't always perfect, but the spirit was deep. I cried many times. Seeing them all as themselves made the meaning of our problem very clear. Opera brings art and beauty to the world, and must go on. May all be well for all of you.
