Bummer, pt. 4

Had a ticket to Saturday's matinée of Otello at the Met with Johan Botha and Renée Fleming. Canceled the trip because I've been sick for a few weeks--it hasn't let up--and a round-trip trek to New York in crappy weather is not what I need right now.

Called the Met to have the ticket reprinted and left in a friend's name. If all goes well, I'll see this production on its last night a week from today.

Yeah, sorry I missed you guys. :-/

It sounded pretty good over the radio--hope you make it down there. Renee's Desdemona is up there with the very best she does.

Thanks, Will - I'm getting better so I do expect to be there on Saturday. I've listened to all of the SIRIUS broadcasts (including tonight's) and as Renee says, this part could have been written for her.

Khaleem, hope you're feeling better and can make it to Otello on Saturday. This role does fit Renee like a glove and she's marvelous in it.

I thought I remembered you saying you would be there! We did look for you. Sorry you weren't feeling well, but I'm glad you got to end up seeing it anyway.
