    Such a gentleman; I might have offered the taxi fare...

    For the record, when she tried the same thing the following night during Die Tote Stadt, I made sure she was comfortable in getting a cab back to the hotel and stayed (for the weird Regie production).

    Puccini's life staged in the theatre. I would love to see this if it ever comes to UK.

    Life really has put that poor woman through the wringer. I hope she will now be able to establish a successful career, and it sounds as though she's well on her way to it.

    I know! A frisbee of all things. It's lucky that she found a specialist who could help.

    Rehearsal and Insight of Javier De Frutos's new production of Philip Glass's dance-opera Les enfants terrible. I wish I'd booked now, I really enjoyed this.

    The Academy of Ancient Music (AAM) is a period-instrument orchestra based in Cambridge, England. Founded by harpsichordist Christopher Hogwood in 1973, the musicians play on either original instruments or modern copies of instruments from the period of time the music was composed. The Academy's current Music Director is Richard Egarr.

    I've been lucky enough to see Richard Egarr conduct several times and I love his work. He has recently performed a recital at Weill Recital Hall.

    It must have been fascinating to hear this performance. Time to do some snooping around on YouTube.

    I haven't heard of this instrument before but apologizing before the rehearsal incase it made you feel dizzy or unwell... that's funny!
