One of the very first things that drew us to Italy was our love of opera. We seem to have come full circle now. Our first trip to Italy in 1990 began in Milan to see La Traviata, Rosemarie was six months pregnant with Jason at the time. While opera does not appear to have become part of his DNA perhaps the magic was delayed. The major reason for our trip this July was to see our daughter Julia in her first role as Fidalma in Il Matrimonio Segreto performed in Arezzo.
