city opera farewell

The snow has stopped and the City Opera has stopped, and, actually, many of us miss both. Not equally, of course, since snows will return and our beloved City Opera, where we loved to go and applaud and hear and see lots of Handel, won't.

So the farewell was tumultuous: Placido Domingo not just kissing  his hands to the audience but touching the floorwhere he, like so many others, had begun, and Julius Rudel wheeled in in his chair, not speaking but waving.

I guess I want to stop here, and right there.
