Not missed, after all

Because of all the fuss at the stadium and the cross-crossing football fans and operagoers, in addition to the change in parking arrangements on and near campus, KMFA broadcast Lady Macbeth live as it was being recorded. The Sunday matinee began late (the current standard fifteen minutes) so there was some unplanned-for tuning, tuning, tuning before the performance opened, but the singing was excellent across the entire cast, the live sound-mixing wasn't bad, and the orchestra sounded very good (while the current chorus, as usual, sounded a bit muddy and unfocused). I would be interested in attending a future performance, when all isn't so hectic here.
