  1. Went to a dress; most singers more or less just "marked"; looking forward to hear them actually sing tomorrow night; nice well rounded cast; the theater itself is awesome, with or without the singers ;-).

    1. I am a little surprised that JK was marking. But he IS pretty careful with his instrument. I am looking forward to hearing your impressions. I think I am going to have to start with Arabella tomorrow, since the BSO probably won't give us a second chance at it. (vs. medici's archives)

    2. What did you think of that Arabella?

    3. Unfortunately I didn't get to see/hear the whole thing. I would love to track down a copy! I want to know more about the giant x-shaped staircase. I liked what I did hear!
