The Met's Summer Encore series are shown without any intermissions, and last night's Carmen was no exception. The three talkative women I went with sat there silent and motionless for three hours and ten minutes, completely absorbed in the opera. I've never before seen any of them go that long without speaking. And I liked it even better the second time around. I am soooo in love with Elina Garanca!

But I still don't care for Teddy Tahu Rhodes.

I turned on the TV last weekend, and caught the last 45 minutes or so of Der Rosenkavalier. I don't know any of the names involved; while the Marschallin seemed quite in character, the other two sopranos seemed a little long in the tooth for their respective parts. I saw it from the comic scene with Baron Ochs on. That soprano trio is beautiful music, isn't it?
