Fishy Circumstances

Opera and ailment

The production of Jenufa was wonderful. I'll write up a proper review of it later when I have more time. Suffice to say for now, I enjoyed it, the composer doesn't write hummable pieces, but he writes very appropriate ones. The set was stark but effective, with good use of lighting, and there were a few particularly wonderful singers. The psychological elements were particularly interesting - but more on that later.

I'm coming down with a cold, but I'm certainly not unwell enough not to be functional today. I've no games planned for this week's tutorial - we can't play them every week! I've another opera tonight, so it's a full day, but hopefully not an overwhelming one since I don't want to be any more ill than I already am.

My last Indigo package finally arrived, and I'm hoping today's weather will be kinder than yesterday's bitter wind.
