So Bohème is over. I never grow weary of the music. It is just a great opera to play and I will certainly miss it.

Now I have a week off of performing (just in time for me to sew costumes for our son who will be Toad in “Frog & Toad”) and then Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. Woo hoo! More great music!

The Prelude to [Wagner’s] ‘Tristan und Isolde’ reminds one of the old Italian painting of a martyr whose intestines are slowly unwound from his body on a reel.
