Morning meal and opera recap [Nov. 27th, 2005|11:39 am]

Had breakfast with bulknews at Java House which is just by the water next to Ballpark off Embacadero. It was sunny and lovely and we discussed lots of geeky things. I am really hoping that YAPC::Asia happens in Tokyo next year and that I can go.

Yesterday at the Opera was fabulous, it was pure joy to listen to, and watch, conductor Nicola Luisotti. The prelude was one of the most beautiful performances I have ever heard, and it really looked and sounded like magic.

Since this is the first time I have seen Forces of Destiny I cannot really compare or judge it fairly, but it does seem to me that Vladimir Kuzmenko as Don Alvaro was just a little bit, too loud. I also sometimes have a hard time with chorus scenes, but they were executed very well and I really liked the war scene, some pretty good staging there.

Now I am off to see Fidelio.
