Serious history party last night. The British history seminar got together and we debated the nature of the early modern public sphere for about two hours, and then we went and drank more than was probably good for us. Still haven’t settled that public sphere thing, but we’re closer now than ever before.
The big question as far as opera is concerned, however, is whether I am going to go another round with Entführung this weekend. A different version than last time. I think I am up for it. And then there is yet another of Joyce DiDonato’s recital CDs (this one with Patrizia Ciofi) and that Gauvin/Lemieux recording of bits of Handel’s oratorios.
