Richter, Seraglio

Paul, Jim, and Melinda, at Starz Paul is singing the lead in the San Francisco Opera's production of Die Entf�hrung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio), and was nice enough to give us tickets to hear him sing in the very last production tonight. He was AMAZING, of course. I wasn't familiar with the opera before-hand (didn't even know that Mozart wrote it!), but the music was fantastic, and I really enjoyed everything about it -- except for the lead soprano, who was sort of weak. It was also fun to watch Paul's make-up folk glue on his wig. :)

In the afternoon, Livia and I went (with her friend, Dave) to the SF MOMA to see the Gerhard Richter: Forty Years of Painting exhibit, which I had also enjoyed at the New York MOMA just before the museum moved to Queens. I absolutely love his paintings.
