I'm all smiles -- I truly enjoyed that performance of the Canadian Ballet Co. inauguration broadcast live at Nathan Phillips Sq.
I first thought the show would be on screens in the open air, but as it
turned out it was held inside large, lovely tents with wonderful sound
equipment, so music distortion was kept to a strict minimum.
The music and images were so good it made me feel like being present in the new opera house itself!

Hi psychspirit:
Thank you very much to taking your time to write it down.
I like this photo too. This is the case when the image can tell more than words.
You have a very interesting blog.
