Although my name has appeared on the side of this blog since its existence, the real person behind it has been Peter Hussell. Peter guided the renovation of the Sarasota Opera through its many phases including fundraising and construction. He lived with it day after day and as much as anyone deserved to take a bow on Opening Night. He labored tirelessly to make sure that everything went right.
And it was he, who took almost all of the pictures that you've seen here and updated you on the project's progress.
Peter has decided to move on to pursue other ventures. Since he'll still be in Sarasota we hope to see him around the Opera House and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. He will most certainly be missed by all of us.
Good luck Peter!
