The way the actors and dancers move on the stage, the well-crafted costumes, I am enchanted by every detail. Needless to say, being able to go behind the scenes at the Semperopera in Dresden was a beautiful discovery.
I had been to the Semperopera around 2009 when I was invited to attend the Semperopera Ball. The building was packed with women dressed in gowns and men in well-tailored suits. Champagne was flowing and the dancers were gliding around the floor. Sure I was able to take in the atmosphere, but something about seeing the Semperopera during the still of day, with no one inside gives an entirely different perspective.
