Saturday morning greetings!  Yesterday's errands were only partly successful, so today we have to return to the Middletown library and the Kroger pharmacy for drive-up pick-ups.  But that will be after my 3 paper crafting webinars, courtesy of Michael's.

This Des Moines Metro Opera production of Britten's Billy Budd is rather good.

DR George I hope you got some sleep and that your mother was able to catch up on her sleep in the hospital, not that I am sure how such a thing is possible.

DR George, I agree with DR vixmom.  You are a wonderful son.  Your parents are very lucky.

Thanks, Larry. ;D

I'm up after a fitful night of sleep, but I did get some.  My dad had some cereal for breakfast, so I'm thinking of going to McDonald's or some other place for mine.  My sister and/or niece will come over in an hour or so, and then I'll be able to go home, feed my cat, take my morning meds, take a shower, change my clothes and then come back.  My mom said that she WILL be coming home today!

I liked the joke pages that DR GEORGE posted yesterday.....my favorites can't be repeated here.....but one punchline was:

"Today is the viewing!"

I'll have to watch this later.  Zachary James is in this.  He was also in the recent Akhnaten at the Met that was shown on PBS. :)

Thanks, Jane.  I hope she was able to, too.

And now, I must be off.  I'm going to get something to eat, come back to my parents' house and wait for my sister and/or niece to show up.

Until later.

Just finished watching Rusalka. I'd actually forgotten how affected I was by it in the theater. What an incredible production.

You can still stream it for free up till about 6:30 eastern. Use the link on this page: https://shrtm.nu/c9zB

I have to watch the one DR Elmore linked to, and I'll see what others are out there. I'm really curious as to how some of this has been portrayed in other productions. And I'm loving the score more and more. This is a winner.

When I was in college, the operas of Dvorak and Janacek, along with others, were still pretty much unknown in the USA.  When I was a senior I went to a friend's graduate recital in which she sang Rusalka's Hymn to the Moon.  At the time I thought, this is glorious; if the rest of the score is as good as this, why does no one perform it?  Twenty-two years later, while I was in Houston working on the Grand Opera production of Babes In Toyland, I saw their production of Rusalka with a young unknown Renee Fleming, and I think that was the start of interest in performing the work in this country.

I love many pianists, classical-wise, including most mentioned, but favorites right now are Byron Janis, Leon Fleisher, Arthur Rubinstein, Maryla Jones, Leonard Pennario, to name but a few.

Having a TV (two, actually) around could fry my brain. We watched a rerun of a late Perry Mason TV movie with Raymond Burr and the rest of the gang with plenty of bad 1980s hair styles.

Couldn't resist. A friend posted this. Shamelessly stole it, actually, as I am doing now.

Okay, they're not all real, of course.
And I rather hope it *wasn't* posted by a librarian. (Nevil who??)
