The Week in Entertainment
Live: Macbeth, the Verdi opera, at the Met. Netrebko absolutely blew the place away as Lady Macbeth - this is the kind of role her powerful voice was made for. Also at the Met, a brilliant recital by René Pape, with Moussorgsky and Dvořák, among others. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime - definitely worth seeing, if not quite as good as the London cast. Of course, they're still shaking it down, so it can only get better. Wonderful show.
TV: The new season of The Middle and Modern Family. I have to admit Alex as joy-killer was funny. And my gosh Luke is growing like a weed.
Read:The Glass Magician, enjoyed it. A couple of old Doctor Thorndykes.
