    2. Yes, Isabelle Faust/Alexander Melnikov Beethoven sonatas at the Gardner on 11/6 is a high probability :)

    3. update: or perhaps not, as AK didn't get tix for that one. However, that isn't to say an excuse can't still be manufactured.

    7. sorry, i should check my grammar before hitting return, i was too paranoid blogo might cancel my reply :D , i mean the first one, Alcina, is from a different group.. let me check:
      Boston Concservatory. Oh, cool, they're singing four consecutive nights starting 17/nov, so i'll have chance to hear them at least twice, then Purcell on sat.

    8. I might make first Alcina. Nov 18 & 19 is the premier of our Suffrage thing over here, and since I helped write bits of it, I should probably attend. Or maybe not! We'll see how the next rehearsal goes :P

    9. i'm now your "neighbor" for the next 2 wks :-)
      yes, 1st night 17/nov would be great fun to catch up! in case you can stay for 18/nov, Ton Koopman and some really good orchestra + chorus are singing bach mass with discount at some church here!
      on saturday 19/nov, i originally was planning to see Purcell's King Arthur by H&H players.. but some friends might want to join for Alcina so likely we'll see Alcina for the 2nd time..
      I already booked my flight out on 20/nov very early and now saw A.Forsythe is singing on that date, grrr :-)

    10. best laid plans...I am out for 17th, they've scheduled a final dress for that whole day and we have some new script rewrites to sort through.

      There's a slim chance I could skip our show here on the 19th -- sorta depends on how things go. Otherwise let me know if there are any other likely opportunities in your schedule.

    11. am lurking here to see if you might be able to escape on the 19th :-) . otherwise, we'll see each other in Feb!

      Delete
    12. Chance is still slim but I'll have a better idea this time tmw. Meantime, hope they do fun things with Alcina tonight :)

    13. actually i'll go tomorrow and sat, b/c they have 2 different casts so i don't want to end up w/ the same cast if i go tonite, then sat :-)

    14. I'm out, too much to do here with the show, so Feb it is. Enjoy yr weekend, safe travels! I may drop by the Trav liveblog on Sunday if I'm conscious...
