>>    Kurt mentions the Chicago Thais with Price. It was the first, well second professional opera I saw and I will never forget it. She was beautiful and the mirror aria was mesmerizing. She was dressed in the most beautiful yellow gown that worked beautifully with her complexion. I was so enamored of Price that the rest of the cast meant nothing to me. By the way the first professional opera i saw was The Medium with Marie Powers.
