      I had the chance to attend your wonderful performance in “I Capuleti and I Montecchi” in Berlin – which I will not forget, until I live.
      Now, I heard that you are a passionate photographer – and maybe I can also put a smile on your face – on behalf of my profession (I am an aviation – and space lawyer -;))) by sending you a particularly beautiful picture of the Earth. It is showing “Earthrise” as taken by ESA’s “comet chaser” Rosetta. The outline of Antarctica is visible under the clouds that form the striking south-polar vortex. (See: http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Science/Highlights/Rosetta_flybys)
      And then, if you should have the time for looking: one more link to amazing pictures of the Earth with interesting comments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU

      With kind regards from Berlin and many thanks again for a brilliant and unforgettable evening!

    Dear Ms. Di Donato,
    The Photo I wanted to send you yesterday is the following (I think, the link I sent you was too general). Since I cannot insert the picture itself, here comes a better link to crescen Earth from Rosetta:

    With kind regards, all best wishes and thank you for sharing your great art with your public and your students!

    With kind regards
    Marietta Benkö
