Saskatoon Opera Behind the Scenes

Those who know me personally know that I can't sing (under statement) and I have what can be (and has been) pretty plebeian taste when it comes to music. So imagine my surprise when I find myself chin deep in the opera and loving it. Maybe I grew up or maybe the Saskatoon Opera is just that good! Either way, one of the most amusing parts of my experiences with last years Opera season was scuttling around backstage. I loved how this cast of cool cats were transformed into Victorian Dukes, Duchesses and peasants, not by the costumes and make-up but by the internal switches they flipped when the curtain went up! Enjoy!
