Ready for their closeup

Opera patrons Cathy and Dick Soderquist are on the cover of Philadelphia Magazine this month, decked out in red for the opening night of Lucia di Lammermoor. The Soderquists were among the many Opera Philadelphians photographed for a special issue "One Day in the Life of Philly." Those photos are now online and they are stunning! Be sure to also check out the print edition.
