  1. Well, there goes my weekend . . .

    1. I don't think I've ever seen you write about Wagner

    2. I know we've had a discussion about The Flying Dutchman.

    3. Bayreuth started today as well, so dueling streams everybody:

    4. Too much Wagner? A few years ago, I'd have said Yes. But not anymore!!
