Today's Times – The Good

This is good, quite good – nice video on the Met’s production of Satyagraha, premiering tonight. We’re going on the 22nd, and I’ll have a report then. Excited about it! This will roughly complete my trilogy of the major Glass operas, which means they are some of the major operas in history; the Oakland Opera Theater did a brilliant production of Akhnaten a few years ago, and we saw the concert performance of Einstein on the Beach last December, which inspired an essay which will appear in the next issue of Modern Mask.

Speaking of opera, this book looks good, especially the title. Kerman has already written the essential book, “Opera as Drama.”

Good weekend to you all . . .
