The Scottish Opera, by Giuseppe Verdi is the first offering of the season by Pacific Opera Victoria. Constance was thrilled to attend the Matinée performance. Despite not being a cheerful story, it was beautifully sung. The human chaperone (recovering from a kitchen accident) became queasy at all the hacking and chopping that occurred. The set design meant Constance couldn’t stop thinking about plaid. Her worst nightmare would be Hittys in plaid pants.
