“In the Shadow of the Stars”

This is a really good documentary–I think it won the Oscar in 1991–about the lives of SF Opera Chorus members. Really wonderfully done, and very true to life. I could be watching a show about most of the people I know.

It also reawakens in me my frustrated desire to have worked in an opera chorus at some point in my life. Sigh…methinks that ship has sailed.

If you have Netflix, it’s available on “Instant Play”–not popular enough to come up on any of the normal lists, but if you search for it you’ll find it. It’s a very worthy watch.
