MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 280 – OCTOBER 7, 2013
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR MONDAY, DAY 280 OF 2013: Well, I’ve had a very busy and exciting weekend. On Saturday, I went to the first Met Opera Live in HD broadcast of the Fall Season at the newly refurbished theater in the Saint Louis Art Museum. On the way to the theater I checked out some new art …
Chiura Obata’s Hanging Scroll Setting Sun Of Sacramento Valley (1922)
Striding Eagle – Venetian Carving – 16th Century
And finally a gigantic wall filling painting by Roy Lichtenstein in the hallway leading to the newly refurbished Farrell Auditorium.
The Auditorium has always been a great venue with wood paneled walls for great acoustics. The restoration has added new carpeting, seating a new larger permanent screen and first class stereo sound system. And the video projection system is even brighter and sharper. In other words, it was made for showing the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD satellite transmissions.
The opera, Tchaikovsky’s retelling of the Pushkin novel Eugene Onegin was first rate. A GREAT OPENING to the opera season!
