Documenting Opera in the Park


I was documenting Opera in the Park the other night by making this wobbly little video of the Madison Opera performing a selection from "The Barber of Seville" when somebody else ran into the frame and ran off with my attention.

KAP'n Craig at the ControlsIt was kite aerial photographer (KAP) Craig Wilson -- KAP'n Craig as he calls himself on Flickr. He has added so much to our visual understanding of Madison and its surroundings. Check out what his kite cam saw. He does such wonderful work.

Thanks as always for coming down to Opera in the Park and linking to some fantastic photos. One minor thing, that an opera buff can't resist correcting: the selection during your film is from "The Barber of Seville" - Figaro's famous aria, "Largo al factotum".

Thanks, Brian -- correction made. Illustrates the dangers of relying on the program and then forgetting where I was when I shot the video. It was a beautiful evening!
