Art museums and galleries, opera, dance, theater, dining, and wine tasting.
I saw Lucia di Lammermoor in SF staring Natalie Dessay. Lucia was standing in field next to a solitary autumn tree. A huge blue moon lit the field. She was wearing a wedding dress. You hear Natalie Dessay's haunting voice. Then the bride turns and she's covered in red. It was visually stunning! So absolutely beautiful. Best opera moment! Honestly, there are a lot of beautiful artistic and/or cultural moments - thankfully, this is not an essay on artistic views. The one that stands out most vividly was the opera moment.
