Post Cards from the Edge Opera | Welcome to Fred’s Home Page


I came to opera late.  Other than on early television, the first live opera I saw was Madama Butterfly Jackson, MS.  The next I recollect was the War Memorial Building in Fort Lauderdale for   Trust me when I say that’s not the best venue for opera.  Later, I was at an Adobe Conference in San Francisco and saw Verdi’s Rigoletto and was hooked.
