As some people know, certainly the neighbors, Robert is learning how to play violin. This includes reviewing performances on youtube.
Here’s two selections. One fiddle style, the other classical style. Robert dares anyone to watch these videos and say s/he perfers one style over the other.
Well, Robert does not really know about opera. He’s been only twice and finds it rather relaxing (if not attention-grabbing).
Anyway, there are a few opportunities to check out some opera this summer without breaking the bank. (Err, it’s already been smashed to pieces.)
First, at the Lark Theater in Larkspur (and elsewhere I believe), we have Live at the Met Summer Opera Encores, where we can see opera on a large screen on a Saturday morning. Sounds good. No kids.
Second, we have opera in golden gate park. The Pierce family will almost certainly attend this year. With kids.
