Here’s the other thing … there’s so much posturing. The parading around and all that jazz. I don’t get that either.

Folks talk about how symphonic performances should change; we should get rid of all that formality. Ballet is full of this but of course can’t get rid of it because it’s part of the whole shebang. Same with opera, really.

Anyway, that miming and everything else just doesn’t work for yours truly.

But now that I’ve been watching the program (which I will readily say is beautiful even while it puzzles me) my left foot has gone to sleep and is driving me crazy. I’m sure this is just punishment for my comments.
