I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of the Luisa Fernanda Opera on the Broad Stage at the Santa Monica Theatre on June 5th. This was a great evening and a wonderful production. I was given the opportunity to return to the opera and take some pictures backstage before the final performance. I have posted some selections below from that evening. The opera was directed by Dr. Janelle Destefano and conducted by Dr. James Martin. I want to thank them, and the entire cast and crew for being so generous and allowing me to take these pictures.
