Cutting Blog

I've been busy preparing for our production of COSI FAN TUTTE in Memphis. One of the things that has to be done fairly early is deciding what music to leave in and what music to cut. Without cuts, COSI might be nearly four and a half hours long and three hours is about my limit. So I've used the blog format to create a cut list for the opera.


  1. life is short Cosi Fan Tutte is LONG.

  2. Most blogs are set up for interactivity, via the comment capability. Did you consider using a wiki? I don't like them myself, but they're used a lot in IT (Information Technology) when people have to work collaboratively on projects. Good luck with this -- 3 hrs is about my limit for sitting still.
