Fisherman’s Song


Tuesday night Jennifer and I again went to Houston Grand Opera—this time going to the final dress rehearsal for their production of Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes.  (Click here if you want to read more on the opera.)  A friend of mine from Michigan, Stephanie, is now a coach for HGO and was kind enough to give us two of her comp ticket… and let me tell you: the offstage organ has never sounded more elegant!

That’s me and Jennifer in 50 years

As if knowing one person in the production wasn’t already cool enough, Kiri, a friend from Baylor who is in the young artist studio, is playing the role of Prince Yamadori one of the nieces!! It really was amazing having the curtain rise and seeing her up there :)

I also did get a chance to go back stage and say hello to Kiri and Stephanie, with photographic evidence!
