Well I apologize for sending that note out inviting everyone to come to
a sold out performance. I hope no one was inconvenienced.
For Frank (AB2KT), it was a triumph. Frank was brought up on stage to
give opening remarks about the opera. This was required as this was NOT
a full production of the opera but playing/singing of the full libretto
and Frank's musical interpretation of the traditional mystery play,
without the action. As such, Frank was asked to come up and explain
what action WOULD have taken place had it been a full production. I was
REALLY surprised to FINALLY understand things like the source of
Milton's "plot" for Paradise Lost. Haleh Abghari, a very well known
mezzo-soprano, was spectacular in her role in this.
I wanted to just say how proud I am to have Frank as a friend. He is a
remarkable renaissance man. The master of ceremonies for the program
even delivered my characterization of Frank as a polymath (with my full
support) in the program. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least.
Shann and I really enjoyed the entire experience immensely.
