Fabulous memories. Would do it again in a flash. Einstein was definitely the most challenging mentally and physically.

A rare treat to see these 3 wonderful operas together. My favourite was Akhenaten.

It was an incredible thing to be part of!

A highlight for me! I would do it again if given the chance! My favourite of the three portrait operas!

I have never counted to 8 so many times in my life!!

Unforgettable.
