When there's time to blog, there's not a whole lot to report. And when there's a lot happening (euphemism for not keeping my head above the operatic waters), there's no time to blog.
Thus, this week-long silence.
Nice web feature on WETA.org - go here to listen.
A week of indescribable ups and downs, putting this show on its feet. A tense tech week and bumpy dress rehearsal (no surprise there) led to a terrific first set of performances. Audiences just love this piece. Justice Ginsberg was there today, enjoying her favorite part of this opera - the courtroom scenes.

Death by Aria
Yesterday, our annual parade of party pieces for the Wolf Trap Associates. Not really "Death by Aria", as we fondly christened the event decades ago. Everything from verismo to Broadway, with a virtuoso Falstaff fugue ending by the Studio. Photos later.
