Dan, Jameson and I went to Der Rosenkavalier last night. When music is so wonderful time doesn’t mean anything any more, I guess. I was mesmerized. (Confession time: I’ve never heard all of DR before. Sad, but true.) What an incredible opera … I’m so glad we were able to go! I know I can’t come close to describing it all.

So I won’t.


  1. I was always taught that it was the primary material from which Strauss upon for the oboe concerto. How can it not be anything but sublime?  

  2. Patricia Mitchell

    I didn’t know that, Cooper! Thanks!

    It was simply wonderful.
