Soprano Talise Trevigne sings the role of Pip, seen here after a storm launches him overboard, in "Moby-Dick" at San Diego Opera in 2013.
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.
