Shortly upon moving to Paris in February I had the great good fortune to meet a scatty young musician
who quickly became one of my close friends. It was added good luck that this unassuming and talented singer-songwriter with unkempt hair and unkempt everything else should turn out to be connected to both the Paris opera houses, such that he gets tickets to the very finest seats in the place, and with which he is mighty generous. He has no qualms, it seems, abetting my sinister romantic machinations, and it was thus that I found myself taking a date to see Aida at Opéra Bastille a couple of weeks past.
