supremecourt.jpgHmm -- in the mail today, an official-looking letter from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

"Dear Mr. Brookes," she writes.  "I read with particular pleasure your review of the final performance of La Clemenza di Tito.  I attended the opening  performance  and was captivated by Marina Domashenko's splendid performance.  She made it Sesto's opera, no small thing given the stilted and silly libretto Mozart set to glorious music. The first Washington Post reviewer, as I recall, did not give Domashenko the rousing Brava she deserved." 

Only in Washington. But, yeah, absolutely -- Domashenko rocks!  Here's the review Justice Ginsburg is talking about.
