Today we embark upon the conclusion of the opera tour. As we approach the final V-I cadence of Rossini, we will enjoy each cast one more time as they step into their colorful roles. We'll get to experience another two rounds of confetti, some rice balls, bento boxes, and several hours of pensive staring out the window into Japanese countryside as the bus takes us to Himeji, beyond, and back again to Takarazuka. And then, goodbye to the world of Barber of Seville. Until the opening of another world.
