Wow! Opera in the Park was a huge success! Who to thank first? The weather gods? Our fantastic crew? Volunteers? Sponsors? The thousands who showed up? As a first-time Opera in the Park staffer, I am simply in awe of the forces that cooperated on Saturday to make such a wonderful show happen, for free, for such a large crowd. I’ll be posting more photos and accounts of the event over the next few days, but for now, a big thank you to everyone. Check out the reviews below, and if you have photos, videos, or comments, please send them along or post to our Facebook page.
