Nixon in China Preparation --- Day 143

Walk:  Various
Distance:  1.5 Mile and teach


A few years ago I saw the debut of John Adams' Doctor Atomic which was quite spellbinding in a strange but musically beautiful way.  So now I am particularly looking forward to seeing/hearing his opera Nixon in China in about a month.

Tonight was a panel discussion with most of the key 'players' - all the principal roles, the maestro, stage producer, head of our opera (Adams himself is in LA debuting a new oratorio) - and hearing them talk about the time, intelligence, heart, soul and who knows what else that has already been poured into the production heightens my interest and excitement. 

More another - or other - day(s).
