The Met NYC.
Met Opera Orchestra [in pit]
Levine visible,at times...Renee sings___people yell "Bravo"--then clap,then yell,then yell more...then yell again.
everything quits,Renee Fleming sings again,solo--------you can hear a pin drop--applause---absolute bedlam again of applause...
150 people suddenly appear on stage---all with a role----mostly singing,mostly dancing and mostly anything goes and goes well----very well !
Love continues,between a "fallen woman" and her lover....
bonds become broken--because of the intervention of Alfredo's father.....
Renee Fleming sings---------people in audience are completly overwhelmed again...
violins enter---Renee Fleming sings again---the musicians in the pit respond---accordingly....
the fantasy is over---all move to the fountain---outside----
reveling in their own splendid dreams..
the opera is finished...
the dreams of the Opera will last continually within the minds of the attendees,as well as the participants...forever !~~
So,for now---life is good---very good..
Renee Fleming is at the top of the list----------- "at least for this week". [her quote...]
Tout est bien qui finit bien... !!!!!!!!!
