By Fred Plotkin | This, my hundredth post on the Operavore blog, finds me musing on how we perceive the messages and lessons that life and music hold for us. Put another way, if we limit what we think is possible merely to that which we can envision, how emotionally and intellectually poor we will be!

If you have been reading my missives since the first one appeared almost eleven months ago, you know that I care deeply about opera, an art form that is at once fragile and tenacious, and I revere the fragile tenacious people who help it thrive. I refer, above all, to artists whom we see and those we do not. But there are also those enlightened managers and generous patrons who put service ahead of ego to make it possible for artists to work. And there are the audience members for whom it is an article of faith to buy tickets to live performances, aware that not every night will be sublime but confident that greatness is within reach and we want to be there when it appears.

We asked Luca, was it good to be back at Glyndebourne this summer?
