So Much to See, So Little Time

Just received next season's programme from <a href="http://uapresents.arizona.edu/" target="_blank">UApresents</a>, the University of Arizona's cultural box-office. There are so many things I'd love to see, but due to budget constraints, a certain level of refrain has to be practiced, much to my dismay. The Chieftains, the Peking Opera, <a href="http://www.epinions.com/trvl-Theater-All-Blast_" target="_blank">Blast!</a> and the Emerson String Quartet are amongst the shows I have had to sacrifice.
Looking on the bright side, I am going to watch Broadway musicals <a href="http://www.thefullmonty.com" target="_blank">The Full Monty</a>, <a href="http://www.contactthemusical.com/" target="_blank" title="Not the Jody Foster one">Contact</a> and <a href="http://www.mamma-mia.com/" target="_blank" title="A musical about three love stories told with ABBA's music!">Mama Mia!</a>. On top of that, I get to hear John Williams (the guitarist, not the composer of <em>Star Wars</em>) himself. Next season looks to be pretty darn good.
My sister's taste are pretty different from mine, so she's headed for three ballets. Coppelia by the Shanghai Ballet, Sleeping Beauty by Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Romeo and Juliet by the Stuttgart Ballet. Throw in the supposedly splendid Tango Buenos Aires and you have yourself a pretty contented sister.
The main highlight of next season (for myself at least) would be <a href="http://www.lesmiz.com" target="_blank">Les Mis&eacute;rables</a>. Even though I've watched it twice, news of it coming here to Tucson is sweet music to my ears. It is like revisiting a long-time close friend or lover, one whom you've shared the most intimate of moments with. One with whom you've shared your heart. Ok, so all of you know I'm talking about my love affair with <a href="http://tribolum.com/oldpage/Eponine.htm" target="_blank">Eponine</a>.
Eponine! My heart flutters at the thought.
