They came for the baseball season, and I didn’t speak out when the baseball season was cancelled, because of the Covid.
Then they came for the hockey season, and I did not speak out, because I was not a hockey fan.
But then they came for my opera —and there was no one left to speak for me.
The 2020 Saint Louis opera theater season is officially cancelled. We’re getting a credit for the 2021 season, to keep our wonderful season ticket seats, but this summer there will be no Carmen or Die Fledermaus, or any other lesser-known operas.
Darn. I was going to hunt for a red bolero jacket for Carmen, too.
