    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

    April 21  Went to the Manhattan School of Music’s production of Rossini’s “La Cenerentola”. It was presented in the very intimate John Jay college theatre since the MSM’s own theatres are being renovated. For us, this is the way we are going to the opera in the future! for $15 Senior seats we can sit in the first few rows and hear every word! The staging is as good as the Met’s or even better if the current minimalism is taken into account, the costumes are gorgeous pre-modernization creations and the singing, while maybe not as exalting as that of the Met roster, is young and enthusiastic and mainly satisfying to our old ears.
