While I enjoyed all the Pacific Northwest sightseeing, I was homesick for opera. So Dean decided to take me to visit Seattle Opera.
On my way... (I feel like I need a theme song here, maybe something with whistling.)
The venerable Speight Jenkins, General Director of Seattle Opera. My homesickness for the Opera Cleveland offices was such that I offered to fetch Speight coffee and make copies, just to feel more at home. (He took me up on those offers but not the offer to rub his feet.)
A former Clevelander! Kelly Tweeddale is the Executive Director of Seattle Opera.
And here I am outside the opera's performance hall.
