On Wednesday night, I was thrilled to be invited by Goretti Liu to the opening of the Terracotta Warriors exhibit at the Asian Art Museum. It’s a fascinating story—the First Emperor of China sought to achieve immortality by building himself a massive tomb with thousands of life-size terracotta warriors (and their horses, chariots, etc.) as protection. It was amazing to see some of the soldiers on display Wednesday night and to learn that no two faces of the warriors are alike. Being there really made me proud of my country’s heritage.
Next week we open Programs 3 and 4 of our season—hope to see you at the Opera House!
