    Disgusting. What are these people thinking? Give us more Wagner!

    Nice. I thought of going but won't be able to, since I'm already going to Santa Fe, Glimmerglass, and Tanglewood.

    Thanks.
    Yep, 8 live operas:
    @Santa Fe:
    The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein
    The Marriage of Figaro
    La Donna del Lago
    La Traviata
    Oscar (world premiere)
    @Glimmerglass:
    Un Giorno di Regno
    The Flying Dutchman
    @Tanglewood:
    Written on Skin
    Plus, lots of good restaurants. I look forward to it.
    Why don't you come to Glimmerglass and Tanglewood as well? I'll be at Glimmerglass on August 10 (the Verdi is the matinee, the Wagner is the evening opera), and Tanglewood on August 12.
    Or, I know you didn't like Written on Skin that much, so, why not just Glimmerglass? I'm sure you'll like the Wagner. The production has opened already and got good reviews.

    It's unfortunate, you're right. Before, your place was #78,345,984 and now it is #78,345,985 - very discouraging, indeed.
