Portland Opera, The Best!

I participated in a unique event put together by the Portland Opera www.portlandopera.org on Sept. 2oth.  Local cartoonists were invited to draw during the rehearsal of Pagliacci and Carmina Burana.  What an experience!  Sometimes the life of the cartoonist is the good life.  I did some sketches and a two page comic recollection of the evening.  I didn’t get a chance to give Carmina Burana any attention in my comic pages since we had just a couple days to put our drawings together, but hopefully the rehearsal sketches give you some idea (although I mainly sketched the performers who were standing still … the elegance of  the dancers will make you swoon and they move much faster than my pen!)
