Goin' to the Show  We went to the opera last night—the first time I'd ever been! My wife's first time, too. It was extraordinary. I especially loved the sets and the acting. A lot of my impression about opera is built on popular myth—divas posing on stage and hardly moving, much less really acting. Yet Errol and I agreed on the connection between silent movies and opera—the ability for actors to act without talking is a skill rarely seen in an age replete with the technobabble and gratuitious eye-snapping action of matrices.
