You leave work for a few days and look what happens.
The Circus Flora big top went up lickety-split a couple weeks ago, so now the back windows of Powell Hall afford us views of dogs and horses and circus folk. Shows begin this week. The music of Handel’s Richard the Lionheart made a nice accompaniment to our views of circus world. Opera Theatre rehearsal on the Powell Stage, acrobats on the back lot. “Damn everything but the circus!” said e.e. cummings.
