MZ and I went over Hank’s aria, and worked it over, but basically it’s gonna work really well. Doing some revisions today and working out the octet where Hank goes into his anxious thing in the bridge again. Funny how this all shapes up, the ironic bits juxtaposing the bits in earnest. Quite a dance if it all comes out believably. Still have much to do, finishing Eileen’s final aria, the finale, the build-up to the climax, putting the whole thing on Finale. So much “finalizing” here, I must start something new.
