Coffee- I was lucky to see Philip Glass and natalie Merchant perform "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" Quite good, and unusual.

pef: Thanks for stopping by!

ms. w: That must've been interesting. Although I've seen Glass in person a few times, I've never seen an opera of his. Honestly, although a wee bit over 3 hrs, I believe I could endure this one, simply for the message it evokes. I'm hoping it makes it to Chicago or video. ; )

I don't know much about these famous people and their musical compositions, but I applaud their efforts!

Phillip Glass can be difficult listening, at least his longer works. I like him, though, he's quite challenging. This should be interesting if nothing else.

And Uncommon Ground has moved.

Your posts always make me smarter. Thanks and keep it up because I am quite dumb.

I'd love to see "To Ramona" made into a play....Nice post Coffee!

kurt: It's such a creative undertaking....and oh so good when the results pay off.

diva: Yes, I've been a fan once I saw him live in Berkeley way back when. Some things are tedious, others grab you in, and this opera about Ghandi is just what the doctor ordered.

Have never been to the Uncommon Ground, so I must plead ignorance. ; (

merle: I don't believe it! ; )

kimberly: Thx.

Sigh. Twenty-five years ago I saw "The Photographer: Far from the Truth," and became a glassy-eyed Glass fan for life. His symphony, "Low," just about saved my life one summer.

I'm really enjoying and just discovering your blog, by the way. Thanks for stopping by mine.
