a perfect nite

it began with a delicious meal of halibut at one of the town's best restaurants. then out to that starry expanse under which is Santa Fe Opera. another brilliant Britten. this time "Peter Grimes" with a magnificent performance by Anthony Dean Griffey in the title role. he brings great voice & powerful acting to the part.

& who cd be luckier than me to hear Christine Brewer sing Britten 2 months in a row. her role here is less than hers in "Gloriana" but she brings as much stage presence & skill to it.

a special nod too to Judith Christin who once again creates an entire world with a supporting part. she has been a joy since I first began going to SFO.
