Toto, I Think We’re in Paris!

I have a special treat for you today – an interview with a young American in Paris. 


“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”


In an era in which most young American women don’t even own a dress or a pair of high heels, a Kansan transplant to Paris has given me some much-needed hope.  Let’s just say that the future of style and class is in very capable, tiny hands.

Curtain Up on a New Season – Part II

In Part I we were back in our seats in the Grand Tier as the curtain went up on our new season at the Metropolitan Opera.  The opera was Mozart’s Don Giovanni (for a synopsis of the story, see Part I). 
 


It was a good news/bad news sort of day.  The good news was that it was a good (not great) performance.  The bad news was that the well-dressed operagoer is fast becoming an endangered species.  The good news is that there are still a few shining examples of how to dress for the opera, even on a dismal, drizzly day in New York.

Curtain Up on a New Season – Part I

The curtain went up on our new season at the Metropolitan Opera on Saturday afternoon.  It was a good news/bad news sort of day. 




It’s always good news to start the season with Mozart, particularly one of my favorite Mozart operas, Don Giovanni (a/k/a the notorious love ‘em and leave ‘em Don Juan).
