LA Opera PSM speaks at local library
« on: Mar 08, 2007, 05:44 pm »
Check out this link

The PSM from the LA Opera, Lyla Forlani, is speaking at the La Canada Flintridge Library on Monday March 12, at 6:30pm. All you LA SMs, come represent!

This sounds like a cool program - maybe we can get more SMs going out and about demonstrating how we do what we do.

I went to hear Lyla speak.  Very interesting and informative, especially since most of the crowd seemed to be opera-goers who had no sense of the backstage.  They asked good questions, though.  I actually learned a lot, since I have no opera experience and have never worked on anything near the scale of an LA Opera production. 

Great to see a stage manager speak.

I think its cool that there were regular audience members there who were interested in learning more about opera production, instead of just taking it for granted that it shows up on stage.  Must have been very interesting to go to!
