Aida depicted on the Lyric's permanent curtain
I had a splendid week and saw so much.
First I’m still blown away by the production of Aida that I saw at the Lyric Opera. Such pageantry! Such voices! I also love the Lyric Opera House‘s interior. Beautiful Art Deco (above).
The last few days due to the warm weather, I’ve seen a dozen or so ducks, which is quite uncommon in this area in February.
I got to see my friend Yuki, whom I haven’t seen for a couple years. I also got a copy of her book Beyond the Mushroom Cloud. Yuki’s a religious studies professor and her niche is the spirituality of the bombing of Hiroshima, which she explores by examining speeches, writings and films about the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I look forward to reading this book.
After brunch with Yuki, I went over to the Art Institute of Chicago where they have a lovely exhibit of Japanese prints from the 1960s and 70s.
