The Week in Entertainment
Live: An absolutely splendidly sung Les Troyens. It was long (they did the whole thing, all five acts), and a woman on the subway afterwards was complaining it was too long. I hope she's not going to Parsifal - I am, Jonas Kaufman, yum. Of course, unlike Wagner, Berlioz is French, and you can't help but think things like "Man, Hector, another ballet?" Also, dress it up all you like, Dido in act five is basically "I'll kill myself! Then you'll be sorry!" Still, such wonderful music.
Read: A couple of Meg Landons, including one I hadn't read before - Some Like It Hawk. I enjoy that series a lot.
