A NYT article featuring a lovely senior who goes to ballet and opera every night and then meets & greets the dancers at the stage door for more than 50 years. Serveral dancers were featured in the video: Kent, Bolle, Gomes, Riccetto, and Saveliev. There're glimpses of Onegin being performed.

I sent you a private message which you've never read. Just a head's up. I am concerned my private messaging doesn't work on here.
Lois Kirschbaum is famous among opera lovers too. I might get like that when I am old.

I love it! How marvelous!

It is so good that she is able to get tickets which do not cost her a huge sum of money. That is encouraging.

I also like the way the ushers speak of her.

What a happy human being. Gee, what more would anyone want from life? Should we all be this satisfied at her age.
