Several friends were in a production of the operetta Candide, and I went to see it, and I’d never seen it before, and I’m glad I saw it, and it was odd and fun, plus Bernstein, plus some great talent, but it was too long, 3.5 hours with intermission, and there were moments when I wanted to scream Enough already!


  1. I reach that point in every opera, even when I know the singers and should be enraptured just to hear their lovely voices.

  2. I am impressed you went to an opera. I don't think I ever have.

  3. This made me laugh. Yes, I know what you mean.
