“Agrippina”: an aside

Updates will be slow for a few days as I am out of the country and possibly out of an affordable internet connection (Zurich!) until the weekend.
Tomorrow night, I’ll catch the last “Agrippina” at Zurich Opera (if anyone else from the Kasarovian Army is visiting, I’ll be wearing the white shirt and a stately male colleague on my arm) – impressions forthcoming afterwards, but if you want to feel as if you’ve been there, check out Purity’s reviews in the comments here.
For the rest of the week, I’ll be attending that conference (yes, the Assyrian Pottery is calling again) that allows me to travel to Zurich in the first place.
Actually, the whole master plan behind the conference (organized by the same colleague who will accompany me to the opera) was to organize it for a date that would allow us to see the “Agrippina”.
Evil academic scheming at its best. And working out, too.
More on Mijanovic’s masculinity skills and Bonitatibus’ boots once I get a minute in between the clay and the terracotta.
A good week to you all!
