Countdown to Curtain Concludes

Voice of San Diego's Arts coverage - Behind The Scene - has been backstage with us all week following what it takes to present grand opera. From building a set to cast changes, from makeup to costume fittings, if you have ever wanted to know what it takes to make opera happen, grab a chair and a computer screen. We always talk about opera being greater than the sum of its parts and this series captures this better than anything we've ever seen.
