What a contrast between the Opening Ceremonies and the opening night opera! At noon, in front of the oldest public building in America, the wife of the Govenor of South Carolina told us that Spoleto attracts "the right kind of tourists." Tonight, in a building that was formerly a popular movie theatre, Spoleto Festival USA gave us the US premiere of a work that was banned by the Nazis who wanted to eliminate those who were not the right kind of people.

Maybe the Festival people should read their own publications. In the program book we learn that one of the trumpet players in the Festival Orchestra is from South Dakota, so that takes care of that, as long as this hard-working player has time be an audience member for some event. But since the emphasis seems to be on ticket sales, maybe it won't count.
