March 14 - Sex and the Closing
Well, we've done it.
Sex and the Bible: The Opera (Part I) --
smiles all around --
thanks to everyone who made it a success in this premiere run, featuring Theresa, Liz, Marilyn, Nathan, Maria, Nanette, Indre,
Crystal, Vicky, and Harriet -- before a very responsive audience including Johns Bilotta and Mcgrew,
Steve Mobia, DVC Music Lit and Theory students, friends and family, and interested others.
That Rite of Sex-and-the-Bible Spring is in the air all day, on these the first hours of Daylight Savings, after the late-night cast party, losing an hour sleep (but thankful for the late-afternoon/early-evening sun), with the last show additionally an interval early at 7pm. The sun shines on a quixotic Wagnerian still life, and it's time to spring to action renting another
van and making the scenic drive past the
Fairfield Water Tank,
Sulfur Springs, American and Jamison Canyons, Sentinel Hill,
over the Benicia Bridge, to the realm of the
Port Costa Hills,
Martinez Refinery Hill, and
Mt. Diablo to
Beyond Route 24,
(including Shakespeare Hill) to
Berkeley, printing up more programs at Copy World,
parking near Fulton and Durant,
walking up Bancroft past
St. Mark's Episcopal and
Trinity United Methodist Churches to
lingering in the
before a presentation by the
Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, with the
St. Mary's Perceiving the Performing Arts
cadre in attendance.
After SATB set strike, back home to prepare for publication another page each of Psalm 10 and Psalm 110 (respectively page 2 and 16 -- which completes the latter) plus compose third sheet of Vespers: IV. Psalm 112 (Laudate pueri).
