Last Thais at the Met last night

It was nothing less than thrilling for me this time. I had a great family circle seat - G101 which is on the aisle and is smack dead center. I still don't love the set, but the colors seemed less jarring and I was expecting it so I wasn't distracted. I also spent time with my eyes closed, just taking in this gorgeous, gorgeous score. The pre-show and post-show antics added to the festivities - reconnecting with old friends and meeting new which are both my favorite part. "The good news is that we might revive this," said La Diva Renée, backstage...then mimiced a bent over old lady as she added, "Of course, I'll be decrepid by then."
