Night at the Philharmonic

This entry has to be quick:
This evening, Brian and I had the night off while the dancers taught a workshop at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. We went to a performance of a ballet inspired by a Jose Rizal novel with music composed by a living Filipino composer. Then we switched theaters and went to the Philippine Philharmonic's "Madame Butterfly". Both shows were beautiful and full of real artistry. After the show I caught up with the principal bassoonist, Pong Mendoza who invited us out for beer and chicharon. But first we exchanged bassoons and reeds for a little!
