“Opera offers the complete entertainment package; most of the arts and humanities — drama, music, dance, the visual arts, the literary arts, history, sociology, philosophy — in a spectacular combination that can spell the ultimate night out, deliver an emotional high, an incentive to intellectual exploration.”
“Like all the arts, opera exists because it meets some of humanity's deepest needs. Intensified by the power of music, serious opera deals with universals and strikes a chord at the profoundest levels of the human psyche.”
“No theatrical undertaking is so opulent, so complex, so all encompassing; none makes greater demands on performers and audiences; nowhere else are so many areas of virtuosity involved.”
“People like what they know and know what they like.”
Ann Thompson, Dutch East Indies-born U.S. arts advocate
