Today is a "Super Five" Day

Although there are those that will argue that arts coverage is dead or dying, we say otherwise. Case in point: these two great articles that humanize the wacky world of opera and illustrate that the people we surround ourselves with are like family - from the stars to the chorus to the patrons that fill our seat.

Take first, Valerie Scher's article on Rita Cartwright - a chorister with 71 operas under her belt.

And then, from the other side of the curtain, a profile in City Beat by Kinsee Morlan on Alice Hartsuyker - a longtime subscriber who has brought multiple generations to the opera.

It's compelling stuff, and a reminder as to why we do what we do. We hope you find them as enjoyable as we did.
