Calgary is a beautiful city! I was amazed at its clean streets, abundant parks, pedestrian paths, shopping, late night dining and more. I have wanted to see the performance of Lakme, but could never find it playing. To see it in such splendor was a real treat. The set was colorful and exotic, with a mixture of elaborate costumes, flowers, temples, and statues of Hindu gods. The soprano sang an amazing rendition of the flower duet. It’s unfortunate that piece debuts in the first ten minutes, but the music was beautiful throughout. There was so much to appreciate. I Highly recommend this Opera, and visiting Calgary should be on everyone’s bucket list.
