Thank you, IRS, for sending the rebate check. While I did manage to save some of it, the rest has happily been spent. (That *was* the idea, right?) Along with birthday monies, said rebate has been put towards what is now a two-year-old tradition: season tickets to the SF Opera.

The 2008-2009 season:
Simon Boccanegra
The Bonesetter’s Daughter
Die Tote Stadt
Boris Godunov
L’elisir d’amore
La Boheme
Three Decembers (Last Acts)
Porgy & Bess

La Traviata

Seriously - what is not to like about that lineup? I’m seeing Ariodante on Tuesday – which is supposedly FABULOUS – and if that, along with the other two I’ve seen in the last week (Lucia di Lammermoor; Das Rheingold), are any indication of the season to come, then we’re in for a great year of opera.
