Gala de Opera-Teatro Angela Peralta, Mazatlan


After the performance a friend suggested that our taste in music is a bit eclectic: blues performance on Thursday night (see the previous days' blogs) followed by this magical evening of opera on Friday. The collage (clockwise) features James Demster, Director Concertador; David Lomeli, Tenor; 1st Violinist (name unknown); and Eugenia Garza, Soprano with Jorge Lagunes, Baritono with the Coro Angela Peralta and the Orquesta Sinfonica Sinaloa de las Artes. The lovely European-style theatre is a jewel in itself. To read about it, click here. I couldn't find any decent photos on any website that does the interior justice so I guess I'll have to try to capture the inside myself at a later time.

Your taste in music is much like my own so I see nothing unusual about that - it is the norm. :) However, I want to be the first one to lay claim to the beautiful violinist on the bottom right photo! (Do you see the perplexed look on the face of the fellow standing behind/next to him?

Oh, Kate, I would hang out with you. I too love the blues and then the opera is way high on my enjoy list of things to do. Fun times you're having.

Come back by to see another photo of the mysterious object on my blog today.

I's funny, my parents did not care for the rock&roll I listened to when I grew up, but I still love the 70's stuff, and my kids do as well. However, some of the other stuff they listen to causes me to scratch my head. I guess the cycle goes on :)

Kate: You brought up a good point here. Mazatlan is more than just the malecon and the Golden Zone. We are serious about fine arts. Mazatlan is also the only touristic city in Mexico that has an "historic center" dowmntown. Good job. I appreciate what you are doing for my city.

I love shooting live performances (I used to do quite a bit). The lighting is usually just perfect with a nice black background.
These shots are great exposures!
