    December 9. The MSM mounted two one-act operas: I Due Timidi by Nino Rota and Suor Angelica by Puccini. The sets, acting and voices were superb  – an infinitely better experience than the Met’s from the back of the Family Circle. We were enthralled.

Sunday in the Park . . . . with the Capulli Dance Company

On a heat-advisory day last Sunday, Christine and I took the 96 Street crosstown to Fifth Avenue and, from there, dragged our reluctant feet up the Park to Harlem Meer where the  Conservancy hosts its regular summer Sundays offerings. The offering for the day was a Mexican band and dance troupe. We were a little late but the effort was well worth every drop of sweat; the music was toe-tappingly lively and the dancers, dressed in traditional costumes, were accomplished and obviously enjoying what they were doing; the audience, sheltered under the trees, caught their spontaneity and humour and applauded rapturously. Enlarge the pictures to full screen for detail:
