It’s November and I am still celebrating my October birthday. I’ve decided to celebrate my birthday all year because “thisisyour(my)bestyear”.
I have always wanted to see the opera Carmen, and when I heard the Dallas Opera was performing it I knew I had to get there. It was performed in the beautiful Winspear Opera House.
Carmen was played by Clementine Margaine who was making her succesful American debut. It was wonderful.
I will celebrate my birthday all year for the rest of my life because each day is special. Here’s hoping that you will celebrate your birthday all year because “thisisyourbestyear”.

Good for you! Glad you had fun.I love “Carmen” saw it on stage at the San Francisco Opera House in the 90s.You brought back fond memories_ of my girlfriend/co-worker at the time_ and my vacation at her home in the Bay Area.A couple years ago, I purchased the 1954 movie version of “Carmen”_ Directed by Otto Preminger, starring Dorothy Dandridge,Harry Belafonte, Diahann Carroll & Pearl Bailey. It is the contemporary version of the Bizet opera, with new lyrics and an African-American cast.So,if you get to pining for another version _this movie was good. Actually found out later from the movie,”Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”(played by Halle Berry)_that she & Otto Preminger dated! Keep Celebrating!
