Re: AB2KT and the opera

Well I apologize for sending that note out inviting everyone to come to 
a sold out performance.   I hope no one was inconvenienced.

For Frank (AB2KT), it was a triumph.  Frank was brought up on stage to 
give opening remarks about the opera.  This was required as this was NOT 
a full production of the opera but playing/singing of the full libretto 
and Frank's  musical interpretation of the traditional mystery play, 
without the action.   As such,  Frank was asked to come up and explain 
what action  WOULD have taken place had it been a full production. I was 
REALLY surprised to FINALLY understand things like the source of 
Milton's "plot" for Paradise Lost.    Haleh Abghari, a very well known 
mezzo-soprano, was spectacular in her role in this.

I wanted to just say how proud I am to have Frank as a friend.  He is a 
remarkable renaissance man.  The master of ceremonies for the program 
even delivered my characterization of Frank as a polymath (with my full 
support) in the program.  I was pleasantly surprised to say the least.  
Shann and I really enjoyed the entire experience immensely.

Congratulations Frank!
