Josephine Novak grew up in London, went to the United States for a year after college and ended up staying 50. In 2002, she moved to Barcelona, again for a year, and is still here.When she was 12, her father decided the family needed an opera education. Every Saturday night through the Sadlers Wells seasons, they sat in the front row, just behind the conductor, Colin Davis. He took to giving them a huge grin and saying, "Hello again."  Between him and her father, an opera addict was created.
