Remember the Seinfeld episode when they go to see Pagliacci? It's on right now--such a great one!
"We're going to miss the overture!"
"You know, it is so sad; all your knowledge of high culture comes from Bugs Bunny cartoons."
"A crazy clown is after you? Oh, that's rich."
Today's opera of choice, however, is Wozzeck. It was a very odd performance though--minimalist and artsy. I liked it, but I sure felt on-edge the rest of the day. Berg will do that to a person. I'd like to soak up some Brahms now, please.
