    On Wednesday night, the epic tale of a white whale and its nemesis, the peg-legged Captain Ahab, came to life right in front of my camera. “Moby-Dick” makes its West Coast premiere this weekend at San Diego Opera at the Civic Theatre.

    We tagged along for a dress rehearsal Wednesday. As Ahab, played by Ben Heppner, led his crew on the theatrical, nautical odyssey, I followed along, focusing on some moments of the drama and the music.


    It is more important than ever to stand up for good journalism. Donate to VOSD today.

      Thank you, Kelly B. will be seeing the show next Tuesday; this photo essay is a great set up. Kind of like thinking about the kiss for several days, then finally making the move!! PS: All Sam's photos are great; my favorite one today is the close up of the violin.

      Sam's photos are once again terrific, especially the leading photo of Pip going overboard. In addition to Sam's great work, it would be nice to know names for the set designer, lighting designer and any other key players who created this beautiful production.
