After driving down from the Bay Area on the I-5 we arrived in Los Angeles.
To be hosted by the opera project’s loyal, gracious, and generous friend, Lyn Kienholz.
The following day, a short driving tour: Mulholland Drive, Laurel Canyon, Hollywood Boulevard, and freeway traffic… to arrive at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for the final presentation of this trip.
In spite of a slight hiccup — the electric piano is delivered without a power cord! — the performance was extraordinary.
And greeted by 56 audience members with a standing ovation.
Big thanks to Adolfo Nodal, Darrel Couturier, and Olga Garay for helping make the evening such a success.
The next day it was time for abrazos and goodbyes to Roberto, Barbara, and Bryan at LAX. But just for the moment. Charles will soon be back in Havana to continue preparations for the Havana premiere.
