Dress Rehearsal and first performance of SCOTT JOPLIN AND TREEMONISHA took flight. Although it was a good audience, I could have wished for more--a sign of the times, I'm afraid. It was an energetic performance, with only a few iffy spots.
I was grateful to have colleagues from a couple of opera companies come down to Memphis to have a look at it.
The performance was followed by an after-show concert by the Carolina Chocolate Drops. They sounded great and looked perfect on the set.
