On Sunday, October 8, I fell and sprained my foot pretty badly during the first intermission. Before the opera started that Sunday, a violinist fell and broke her foot in the parking lot. And on Saturday night, another violinist fell down some stairs and got pretty bruised up. The opera on stage was Verdi’s MacBeth. If you want to see how full of bad luck this opera is, watch the horror movie Opera (but only if you have a strong stomach). The music is truly beautiful.
