    So sorry I missed it...my niece & a friend rolled in at 4:00 INSTEAD of 1:00 so I had to take care of them. Thank you so much for putting this together. I heard a lot of the opera on the radio & it sounded wonderful.

    Thank you for your note Eli - I was at the Saturday showing at Fairfax Town - I did not LOVE Rigoletto although my mom did - although I thought the assassin was absolutely terrific as well as his sister. I did not think Rigoletto was sympathetic enough. I guess I really liked the singing but found the acting turgid - the staging was great though. My cousin agreed.

    would love to but have other plans that evening - look forward to future events. Are there plans to travel to NYC to see Traviata at the Met?

    And don't miss Francesca di Rimini before the Meet Up. It's the tale of a woman tricked into a loveless marriage. She who fools around, finds true love and meets a tragic ending. The perfect opera!
