norma night

Listening to Norma as I worked on a project this evening and Stephen painted across the way in the studio. I told Stephen after: supering for Norma was one of the closest things I have to Christmas as an adult. A magic like the magic that attached itself to colored lights when I was a kid. Always takes me a bit to "come down" after the last amazing piece of music in that opera. Bellini was a master of tension. Gadzooks am I glad I got to get burned at the stake to that music.

  1. I cannot say that I approve of the word "gadzooks" used in conjunction with the wonders of Norma, either toward the masterwork itself or toward your transcendent performance in it. I understand the ironical usage, my dear, but still.... ;)
