I am a lover of horticulture, gardening and the environment. At age 8, I sent away for a package of Zinnia seeds for 10 cents and I've been hooked ever since. After 25 years of being self-employed, I retired. That only lasted 4 years and I now work in a water conservation program: I buy grass from homeowners who are willing to convert to desert landscaping and lose that thirsty green stuff. I pursue what interests me and you can blame my sister for getting me into this blogging thing.

Phantom of the Opera

We went to see the lavish production of Phantom of the Opera last night here in Las Vegas. It is spectacular. If you're coming to Las Vegas, by all means, try to get tickets. The sets and costumes were remarkable.

The front of the theater looks like a baroque opera hall complete with box seats along the side. The boxes were populated with costumed (dummy) opera goers that were wearing period clothing.

There is an marvelous chandelier that splits into 4 parts and is flown over the audience. It was so gorgeous. The performers are from Broadway and are especially good. It is no wonder that the local paper said this production was the best entertainment in town. Coupled with a live orchestra, the costumes, lighting and wonderful lyrics, it was a perfect evening. Well done! Bravo!

I have only seen it on television, and would love to see it on stage. It is a classic.
