I just read of another opera company (one that does concert performances) that has canceled the remainder of their season. I was going to post the link, but I’m wondering if all the doomsday stuff I post is only causing readers of this blog — or perhaps just me! — to grow more fearful. So never mind.

I think from here on out I’ll just post good news. Who need the bad news, right?

We all know that things are rough right now. I don’t need to remind anyone of that. I do need to remind myself, and perhaps those who read this, that good things continue to happen as well. So there you go.

Moving to good news …

Today we had the orchestra rehearsal of Cosi fan tutte. I just love this music, and I’m so glad we are doing it. The overture has some oboe licks, to be sure, and there’s one little run in the finale of the second act that always scares me a bit. I sit for quite a long time and then I have to come in and play the thing. Good old Mozart; he does let us sit a good long time and do nothing sometimes.

I’ve been told that the singers are incredible. I can’t wait to hear them. We have the first sitzprobe tomorrow, and the second on Friday.
