A word of explanation

So, ironically enough, as the Toronto critics began to arrive in Montreal for the final stages of the CMIM, personal circumstances forced my return to Toronto.  It’s not a happy time and my emotional ability to engage with performances is very limited.  I realised this yesterday at the art song final where four very fine performances failed to generate any emotional response in me.  It was at that point I finally admitted to myself that my duty and my sanity lay at home and I made my arrangements to return.  Hopefully I’ll be able to watch at least some of the webcasts but even that may be hard for the next 24-48 hours.  So, my apologies if this is where you have been following the CMIM.  Both Opera Canada and Schmopera, among others, will have full coverage so I suggest you check them out.  I’ll see you again on the other side.
