Went with Kim to the Opera tonight. LaTraviata, Die Fledermaus, Faust and Das Rheingold from Wagner's Ring Cycle make up the four that I've seen and I have to say...I just don't get it!! Kim has purchased a half a season every year for 18 years now. She loves the pageantry, the music, the sets... More power to her I love to see her so passionate about the Lyric. Why don't I get it? I am a fan of all styles of music but I get lost in non melodic tunage. Now on to the fun stuff. I saw "frasier's" John Mahoney there tonight, pretty cool. A few years ago I was attending Faust and in the lobby, who should I see but Billy Corgan in the lobby and then I bumped into him later someplace else.
Kim's brother is a DJ in Texas and felt the experience was broadcast worthy.
My brush with greatness
*edit* Billy's last name was corrected, Thanks Chris.
