Two seasons ago,I saw the LA Opera's production of "Thais"..... twice !! It has become one of my absolute favorites. This beautifully done bracelet allows me to re live this opera whenever I wear it. I know it will be an amazing coversation piece and quite possibly serve as "enticement" for future opera lovers !
