I’m looking forward to this. It’s an opera I’m entirely unfamiliar with. In a bit I’m going to listen to it as I … can you guess … work on reeds. (Yeah, I won’t be listening as carefully as I should, but reeds simply won’t wait!)


  1. This is so lovely…as is the rest of the opera. I remember now that Die Tote Stadt is one of the operas you will be seeing – I envy you!

    It’s one of my absolute favourite operas both to play and to listen to.

    I’m sure you will enjoy it tremendously!

  2. I wound up NOT listening to it while working on reeds … I knew I’d be too distracted. So we’ll hear a lot of it for the first time when we are at the opera. I have the recording, but I’ve just never gotten to the whole thing!
