CBC’s opening night

I’ve been spending far too much time working at the computer with PhotoShop, developing images for a series of prints combining inkjet and collagraph prints in layers. I’ve been in the printmaking studio printing proofs, and back to the “drawing board”, aka my Mac. Tonight I was too tired to even blog, so decided on some rare TV watching.

I was lucky that CBC’s Opening Night was on, for this season’s premiere. Featured was I, Claudia – “Based on the hit Tarragon Theatre play by Kristen Thomson, this extraordinary one-woman acting tour-de-force explores the pre-teen world of Claudia, as she struggles with the divorce of her parents, her father’s remarriage and puberty.” As it happens, Chandrasutra has written a great review of this unique play.

The second half was Vienna, City of My Dreams – “The irrepressible Canadian tenor Michael Schade has been the toast of Vienna since his debut there in 1992. For this Viennese tribute he is joined by his wife, mezzo-soprano Norine Burgess, in a program of operetta favourites.” This lovely romantic music lifted my spirits and energy so much that I was able to do a bit more work in preparation for some more proofing in the studio tomorrow and finish with a quick blog. Good night!
