No. 217: A Most Common Misconception

A most common misconception
is that opera is something we GO to,
something that is separate from who and what we are.
When we know a deeper truth:
that opera is all around us at any time,
made up of all the elements and emotions of life--
all the sounds, textures, tastes, and senses of lives
lived on the sentient flow of breath-- 
and of the rhythms of feet which, even walking, are in dance--
When we know this deeper truth
we are free to revel and celebrate in our very human existence:
the thing that inspired opera in the first place.

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.
