The DVD has just arrived in the mail. I am going to re-view it tonight and see what I need to emphasize/clarify/ explain to my audience about Tchaikovsky in my pre-movie talk. The flyers are out, so the news is sinking in and my crowd is getting excited.
My boss has given me a lot of support about the whole thing and asked me to order a cake with a special music-themed design on it for everybody to enjoy on that night.
While I was placing my cake order, the bakery employee assured me that they can make any design on the cake should I provide a picture.
So I am thinking, how about this one, made in white icing on a chocolate cake?
On a slightly different but still a very relevant note, I am going to Charles Theater to see La Boheme movie this Sunday.
Aside from a pleasure of seeing it, I think it's important that I see it, because who knows what my next(!!!) music talk is going to be about. After I see the movie, take an Opera America course and attend that fabulous exhibit at Morgan Library...it might be about Puccini after all.
