Debbie Does Strauss

Oh Debbie, when you sing Strauss, you are sublime! Tonight Deborah Voigt was glamorously turned out in a black gown that featured a geometrically design of glittering beads on the bodice. We were treated to "Befreit", "Lied der Frauen", "Morgen!" and Fruhlingsfeier". She favored us with "Dedication" as her encore. Oh she was fierce all around! But oh she was so tender with "Morgen!". I split at intermission - after all, who really wants a piece of Mahler when I was so satisfied with the Strauss, especially when it's coming under Maazel's choppy baton?

Well, folks, that's it for my 2006/07 season of subscription tickets. Whatever shall I do now?
