     Myrtle took Harvey to his first opera, Verdi’s “La Forza del Destino”

 

 

“You’ll like it,” she said. “Opera helps me relax. In German it’s ‘die Macht des Schicksals.’  It’s about a Spanish Marquis whose daughter is heartbroken because he’s forbidden her to marry a Peruvian Inca half~breed.”

 

 

“It involves all kinds of murder, subterfuge, warfare, the whole works,” she explained.  ” It just goes to show how far deceit can go…all that with such perfect singing and music.”

 

 

Staring at her in total awe, he exclaimed, “That’s how you relax?!  What does it take to get you riled up?!”
