Back in April I posted a link to a video about Joshua Bell, the violin virtuoso whose Washington, DC subway performance was ignored by pretty much everyone who passed by.
The Opera Company of Philadelphia had quite a different experience at the Reading Terminal Market. On April 24, 2010, they wandered through the packed market singing “Brindisi”, from La traviata.
People were bemused, then captivated. They smiled. They laughed. And I’ll bet some of them became opera fans.
Opera Company of Philadelphia has its own YouTube Channel. You can go behind the scenes in the costume shop, watch snippets of operas, and meet some of the artists.
I confess I’ve never been an opera fan. These people just might convert me.
