Oh, I love that! In the oven, indeed! But I must say, when I saw the letter about Farrar, I was hoping it was going to be a confirmation of a new contract for more from the early days of the Met. Wait! I have an idea -- move the Met to San Francisco and imagine an alternate universe where opera found a center in the West and usurped the place of the film industry. Look, if Fforde can do it with literature, who says we can't imagine a world where opera became lingua franca.
