I'm Afraid Cavaradossi Takes the Bullet This Afternoon

Dear  Diary:

I am a volunteer with the Metropolitan Opera Guild. In January, I was with a Manhattan middle school group attending a dress rehearsal of “Tosca.” We were sitting in the Dress Circle.

During the intermission, I was explaining the history of the opera house. Gesturing toward the side boxes, one of the students asked, “Which is the box where Lincoln was shot?”
