    Sondheim, Wagner Etc

    Tonight I saw Sondheim's Assassins for the first time. In the discussion on the way home (an 80 minute drive) many different musical examples came up including various scenes from opera, and I realized how tenuous are the various genre lines that so many people feel a need to...
