Don’t forget! Tomorrow … Magic Flute. Mozart. Kenneth Branagh.

Okay, so Mozart probably won’t be in the theater, and Branagh (as far as I know) won’t be singing. But I’m not about to miss this one!

And maybe this explains the Queen of the Night ear worm I had on my walk yesterday. Hmm.

Here’s your friendly reminder:

The Magic Flute
