The Transition

Returning to Minnesota after months in warm, sunny Mazatlán, México is not always easy after getting used to the much warmer temperatures, but spring in the Midwest is on its way and is always delightful. To make my re-entry and transition easier, I decided to indulge myself with something pleasant and was able to get tickets for Rossini's The Barber of Seville performed by the Minnesota Opera Company in the spectacular Ordway Theatre. The two figures in each snapshot are the Count Almaviva and Rosina. A wonderful performance!! Am I happy to be back? Hmmmmm!!!


  1. they are so cute! so well photographed too - you must of had very good seats. Hope it was a nice diversion from the cool/cold weather.

  2. Welcome home, Kate! Leaving the temps of paradise for the cooler climbs of home sounds like it will be a bit of a mind bender. Glad you enjoyed the opera. Marvelous photos of the characters! How did you get such great shots in a theater?!
    I look forward to seeing some of your impressions of SP in spring.

  3. Welcome home Kate! An opera should certainly put you in good spirits. The performers look quite expressive too - I'm sure it was good.

    Unfortunately, here in Ohio, we have had more wintery weather than we had in the winter months. It is supposed to warm up into the 80s by this weekend. I assume this weather will get to your area first.

  5. As promised - Welcome Home!


Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
