Thankful

We here at Aria Serious would like to take a moment to thank all of you for your support with our fledgling blog.

If you are a reader, commenter, ticket buyer or donor (not just with us but with any opera company) we thank you.

These past few months we've shared with you some stories about the hard times every arts organization is facing. We can't promise those stories are going to go away, but we can promise that we'll continue to give you behind-the-scenes looks at the workings of our Company (even more now that we'll actually be in season and you know, actually have stuff going on behind-the-scenes).

We have a favor to ask of you however: would you please do your part in helping to fill you local opera house? Purchase tickets, bring a friend, give a gift certificate and share your love of opera with those you love. Studies show that those who attend opera on a regular basis were first introduced to opera by a family member or a friend.

We can think of no greater gift than a lifetime of opera. Perhaps maybe a lifetime of beer, but one must consider the logistics of wrapping such a gift.

We here at Aria Serious would like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving, and to let you know that we'll be gone for the rest of the week, happily napping off our Tofurkey dinners and avoiding the malls, since everyone we know is getting a ticket to the opera.

That, and a bottle of beer.
