On Sunday afternoon I had the pleasure of attending a performance of Mozart's Masterpiece Don Giovanni performed by The Peabody Opera Theatre at the Modell Performing Arts Center. It was a thrill to hear the exquisite voices render Mozart's arias.

This was quite a different audience than the usual Baltimore opera aficionados. It was a younger crowd, probably family and friends of many of the performers. As an octogenarian who has been an opera fan, I found it refreshing to see our local institution put on such a professional and musically proficient performance attended by a whole different demographic. So often we are enamored with the "out of towners," but we have this gem right here in Mt. Vernon.

Kudos to The Peabody Opera Theatre and here's looking forward to attending more of their thrilling performances.
