Many thanks to Kathleen for the wonderful tickets to the BSO's opening night on Wednesday evening (although I should say "ticket" because all my friends are uncultured heathens and so I ended up going alone - the other seat went unused). It was an amazing Russian-themed performance.

The evening started with a cocktail reception. Some sparkling wine & some Russian food and then came the music.

The concert started with Glinka's "Overture to Ruslan and Ludmila" followed by the "Letter Scene" from the Tchaikovsky's opera "Eugene Onegin," featuring Latvian soprano Maija Kovalevska. And then they finished off the night with Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition."
Most notable was the comeback of James Levine - after a hiatus as he recovered from kidney surgery.

I'm not a music critic, so I don't know what else to say other than this - if you don't have tickets yet for this season's BSO - get them now! It was a great night.
