The scene: // Loud, rumbling booms of thunder but it’s not raining, at the moment. We had a downpour a bit ago. Later it will be hot and humid. Welcome to summer in St. Louis.
Listening to: // The Magic Flute by Mozart. I just picked one of the albums on Spotify.
Reading: // London by Edward Rutherfurd. I’m up to the building of the Tower of London.
Watching: // We went to see The Magic Flute at the Opera Theatre of St. Louis last night, as designed and directed by fashion icon Isaac Mizrahi. It was staged as if on a 1950s Hollywood sound stage. I recognized visual reference to Singin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris, and The Band Wagon. The Queen of the Night entranced us with her arias, Tamino and Pamina were lovers to root for, and Papageno was always good for a laugh. Magical!
Blogging about: // Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice.
Participating in// Today’s Spread the Love Linky Party at The Steadfast Reader.
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
