    This is great. I hope more public performance places are able to follow suit while we work to try and get things back to whatever normal is these days.

    Gone into Met therapy over the last 7 weeks or so. Watching 3-4 operas a week. Be warned though, many operas may be too twisted and violent for some of the RSP Kids here.

    I enjoyed the Marnie opera, certainly more than I cared for the movie. Based on the same book.

    A couple of nights ago, watched the Met's 2013 production of Rigoletto set in 1960 Las Vegas. Very well sung, I enjoyed it.

    A few in the audience booed the semi nude dancer at the beginning of Act III, (alas not in the above clip), but they were drowned out by an impromptu smattering of covering applause.
    She didn't bother me at all.

    In case the cost of spaceflight drops dramatically, I'm saving up so I can catch a performance of this on the moon.
