Last week's question was:- This opera, though composed in the 20th century, is set in the 18th century and based on a series of Hogarth prints.

A Traveller in Time correctly guessed The Rake's Progress, and so it was. I just finished working on this truly delightful piece at Wolf Trap Opera, and from the sets to the singers it was a delight.  You can find a review of the production here.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful experience. As much as I love music, the opera is all about the costumes! I also loved the fan a couple posts back - have one (not nearly so nice as that) I keep meaning to dig up for these hot days.

    1. I adore fans, they are such little works of art! I'm teaching one of my classes how to make them next semester.
