Oh what a great week music- wise!
Friday evening to La Scala to see Attila.It was spectacular, a real Scala-style production, pulling out all the stops! They even had horses on stage and Attila sang seated fearlessly on the back of his charger. I enjoyed everything about it, direction, choir, singing. I’ve made a vow to myself, I really must study Verdi, because, unlike my friends, I don’t really appreciate him. I mean with Wagner it was love at first sight (hearing) and Kurtag just wowed me! But you can’t live in Italy and not love Verdi.
