– One-act operas by Anthony Davis, Barbara White and Princeton undergrad James Chu will be done at the McCarter Center in Princeton on March 30 and 31. Susan Narucki is the lead in a new opera by Davis, Lear on the Second Floor. It’s been years since I saw it, but I did like Davis’s Malcolm X opera. Sarah Davis is the lead for Barbara White’s piece – I first heard Sarah at Songfest, thought she did a wonderful job with a Harbison premiere.

– I’m about a month late linking to this post by Joy Howie of Emmanuel Church, but it’s still Lent, and, as the scripture says, “Now is the acceptable time”.
– and a bit of belated St. Patrick’s Day humor, fecund in its nuttiness.
