When I began Opera West I don’t know how many years ago, the Internet was in its infancy and the World Wide Web was virtually unknown to anyone without a special interest in it. The opera site was part of a “Classical and Dance Forum” carried by San Diego Magazine.
For many years now, Opera West has been a non-commercial site (despite the dot com designation), and today marks its first launch with upgraded software.
I am retired from writing for other publications. This now my personal “blog,” a word that did not exist when I began. At age 70, I feel free to say what I want and to avoid a formal tone. I hope readers enjoy the site.
