A visit to the opera house can enchant, beguile, amaze – it can make you happy and melancholic, thoughtful and captivated, hold you rapt and perplex you. Every opera or ballet performance is a powerhouse of emotions, fueled by the many people on stage and in the wings, all of whom contribute all their skills and knowledge every day to ensure that the curtain goes up on time and the magic unfolds across in the footlights. Coming together to experience and share in this range of emotions – doing this is more priceless today than it has ever been before. And the art forms of opera and ballet make this possible like no other art forms.
