Had a driving job this morning, by way of a change – the ground was thick with snow, which seemed to form a blanket creating the warmth to thaw itself. Easily got a ticket for tonight’s performance, Lortzing’s “The Armourer of Worms”. There was too much unintelligible libretto. My real motive for going being to see again the attractive Summer-night’s spook which followed it. But I also obtained a ticket for Tannhauser tomorrow.
