Amaragosa Opera House Death Valley Junction CA February 2007


I like to find details that tell stories. On our tour backstage I noticed this which seems to me to tell so much about the performances that Marta Becket still gives. The strong-box which holds the money from sale of tickets, the thick glasses which could belong to an 80 something dancer who needs to count the take, the towel which probably finds good use during the performance, and the splash of color which is evocative of 60's design which is when Marta started performing here.

Leave it to Tim to find Marta's glasses and cash box. These details make her more human to us, and less of a living legend.
