James Valenti in Madama Butterfly

Last night we were at the opera again, this time to see tenor James Valenti in the Met's production of Puccini's Madama Butterfly.

I started this sketch before the show, referencing a variety of googled images, and then finished it in my opera seat. James Valenti is really fun to draw, with wonderfully chiseled planes.

Jeanette and I were invited backstage afterward, and we shared the glow of success with James and the Valenti family. That's his dad, Joe on the left.

We rode into New York with our friend Christopher Radko, left, known for his Christmas ornaments. He's now launching a line of organic wild lavender products.
James Valenti will be in three more Madama Butterfly performances: April 9, 12, and 15.
Thanks, Paul!
