Six word Fridays ~ Light

oh, the magic...the magic of
music and lyrics, memories and lights!

The marquee filled me with anticipation...

That single, grand piano greeted us
and the audience was all abuzz!

This show kept all its promises ~
as we strolled down memory lane, 
our guides were melody and verse...
and we caught a glimpse into
a beautiful songwriter's heart and soul.

Her story joins the many tales
these hallowed walls, mirrors and lights
can tell...just imagine all they've
seen and heard over the years!

For nearly a century, this gilded
Opera House has showcased the arts,

bearing witness to the changing culture
through the voices of our artists.

I'll take a ride down memory
lane in this place any time...

"If art reflects life, it does
so with special mirrors." Bertolt Brecht

Six word at a time,
