I'm sorry I had to miss Saturday's Opera in the Outfield
simulcast of the Washington Opera's premiere of La Traviata
, which The Post says
drew 15,000 people to Nationals Park
. Even Placido Domingo popped across town from the Kennedy Center to check it out: " 'It's phenomenal,' he says backstage before he jumps into a limousine and heads back to the Opera House. 'The sound is phenomenal. You see kids playing in the outfield. That is beautiful. We hope to do more productions like this. But this is special. It's opening night.' "
