I'm seeing the world, one opera set at a time.

At the end of last week, I headed west with Kish to Lyric Opera of Kansas City to meet and supervise the installation of Opera Cleveland's Giulio Cesare set (Julius Caesar for the philistines).

Keep on Truckin'
The sets are a little big for carry-on luggage, so 18 wheels are the way to go. I navigated the driveway, because I travel par avion.

Of course, airline travel has its downsides. I had breakfast twice that day (if you know what I mean).

Beware the Ides of March
Oh, those wily stage hands. They put me up here to supervise then neglected to help me down. (How many times do I have to say: I CAN'T fly.)

Walk like an Egyptian
But I think toga parties are NOT what Giulio Cesare composer George "my middle name is not Messiah" Handel had in mind.

Let my people chickens go.
No, seriously.
