So David Bratman must dislike Mahler. A lot. I love the composer, myself. Anyone else?

I’m home from opening night of Romeo and Juliet. Such music! I never grow tired of hearing it. The costumes are great too, from what I can see. Great colors! One family in cool colors and the other in hot. I can’t see everything, but I at least have the best seat in the pit (aside from the conductor’s and I suppose the basses, since they stand so they can see more): I’m just to the conductor’s right, closest to the audience, so I can see the stage and see the dancers from about the waist up (they don’t do anything with their feet, do they?) It’s mighty fine music. Really.

I think we had a tiny audience, judging from how quiet it seemed out there. Too bad. But it was cold, wet and windy … not exactly encouraging to those who might buy single tickets on the night of a performance. Do come if you have the chance. This ballet doesn’t come to town often.
