The Concert

by Sara Wright

A moment means a short period of time that passes.  I definitely lived in a moment when I saw the soprano Sarah Brightman, on December 13, 2008 in Victoria.  As the sound of a bell toll I saw this figure come out of the dark with a veil covering figure.  As soon the figure came into full view my jaw dropped into a grin because I knew it was Sarah Brightman.  As the music changed to “Gothica/Fleur de Mar, she was stripped down into a red dress.  Then a beam of light shone upon a diva.  The holler of this angel that blast through the stero made me feel that this moment of actually seeing Brightman made me feel totally star struck.  I was totally in awe and enjoyed every moment of it.  Although the moment lasted about two hours, I wouldn’t forget this short passing of time.
