plot, or lack thereof

reading. techfee. dinner at Ruby followed by The Magic Flute . It was my first opera, and from what I can tell Mozart wasn't especially into drama. I admit to missing some plot developments due to minor zoning out and inability to understand operatic dialog. The musical aspects were good, but it was weird that it was in english. Like most musical theater, it was a few scenes too long (a couple could've been rearranged too). It was inexpensive and entertaining, so this shouldn't be interpreted as a complaint.

I had a cappucino at intermission which prevents me from being asleep even though I'm sort of tired.

I like how this post seems to be about me saying that I could write a better opera than Mozart.
