daphnis et chloe

“A meadow at the edge of a sacred wood. In the background, hills.”

Honduras countryside

“The earth opens. The fearsome shadow of Pan is outlined on the hills in the background, making a threatening gesture. Everyone flees in horror.”

Cracks in ice

“Suddenly the air seems laden with a strange feeling; small fires are lighted by invisible hands.”

“At daybreak bird-songs are heard, shepherds arrive to find Daphnis and waken him. Chloe is brought to him. They embrace, and then together mime the legend of Pan and Syrinx.”

Saw the Nashville Opera’s production of La Traviata with my friend Jane this weekend. Didn’t take any photos of note, but it did remind me of all the illicit pictures of concert halls I’ve taken in the past:

American Ballet Theater @ The Met, New York City, July 2010

Main Staircase, Opera Garnier, Paris, France, July 2008

View from Box Center, Vienna State Opera, Vienna, Austria, July 2008

Main Stage, Vienna State Opera, Vienna, Austria, July 2008


Then again, “illicit” is subjective, isn’t it?

And oh yeah, I moved to Nashville. #OverdueNotifications
