The Opera Singer and the Violinist - Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes in “The Canary Trainer”
Edit of a previous photo manipulation. Added in a bit of filter.“La Sorelli, falls ill and is replaced by Irene Adler, a past adversary known for her ability to outwit Holmes. His admiration for her provokes uncertain emotions, largely foreign to his calculating nature—but he soon realizes that torment is secondary, when the opera rehearsals subject him to her incomparably beautiful singing.”
The Canary Trainer: From the Memoirs of John H. Watson is a 1993 Sherlock Holmes pastiche by Nicholas Meyer. It features a time during Sherlock’s death/hiatus, where he travels to America and works as a violinist in an opera house. There, he crosses paths with his former adversary, Irene Adler, now an opera singer. It is heavily implied at the end that they consummated their relationship.
