Greetings dear readers. My apologies for the long gap between postings. The last week brought many unforeseen challenges that prevented your stand-in-scribe from submitting his daily postings. But, alas. I’m back!
Following up on my Sept. 17th posting regarding the reports of a potentially sacrilegious season opening production of Puccini’s Tosca. It turns out that the production was “cleaned up” prior to its opening night. Read Catholic League President Bill Donohue’s posting on the dress rehearsal he attended. Nevertheless, the Director merited the boos and jeers of a disapproving audience that did not appreciate the many liberties taken with this classic opera.
I believe that this is a clear case of “The Fat lady singing”. (I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
