Opera Australia at 50

Opera Australia turned 50 this weekend.

It started out as the Australian Opera Company in 1956, then it became the Australian Opera in 1970. When it merged with the Victorian State Opera, it became Opera Australia.

They had an open day today in Sydney. I would have enjoyed going and wandering around hiding in the costumes and climbing the curtains.

I'll just have to suffice with listening to recordings.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Today was another quiet day until Sooty and Spike's human Tim came over in the afternoon for a few hours. He introduced my human to Full Metal Alchemist which looks like a very interesting anime.

Later tonight Mary came over for a quick wine and cheese. After that, he spent too long in the kitchen making more preserved lemons. Thankfully my human had managed to fit in a nap together with me earlier.
