I want to apologize for the current state of this blog. I have passed the 80 years mark and find that I am both physically and mentally old, perhaps too old for blogging.
Sources of opera have been drying up:
- Opera companies have shut down due to covid. Most have restarted, but there are still fewer than before.
- I am too old to travel. I have even cancelled my tickets to the San Francisco Opera because it is now to far for me to drive.
- Fewer companies are streaming than before. This is now my primary source of opera and it's nothing like what it was before.
That's enough for now.
