Halfway through Otello. And I am still making my way, slowly but happily, through a great big pile of Bach cantata recordings I got dirt cheap a while back. (Various soloists – including Andreas Scholl! – with the Collegium Vocale/La Chapelle Royal under Philip Herreweghe.) It has also emerged that one of my new colleagues has a husband who works for a large-ish opera company in a nearby city. She (the colleague) said she’d see if she could get me some free tickets. Nice!
Also, it’s come to my attention that there was at least one comment this week that WordPress mischaracterized as spam, so I didn’t see it. If you write a comment and this seems to have happened, let me know. I know that occasionally there are issues with comments that have several links, or comments that somehow manage to trigger WP’s filters for reasons no one knows. I don’t moderate or delete comments, but sometimes things go wrong.
