A few faithful friends trooped down to Toulouse to see Handspring's riveting production of the Monteverdi opera, Il Ritorno d'Ulisse. After the show, we crossed town to down oysters at Antoine's restaurant. Oysters had all been consumed, but nevertheless Antoine uncorked a few bottles of wine and threw together a veritable feast. He also bolted the doors and refused to release us until 3:30 am.
Here is the review of the Venice production of the opera from the International Herald Tribune.
