Boy it sure is windy outside, huh. WINDY. The italics give it more purpose. Also, a lot of music and not too much else this weekend.
- The Kennedy Center Jazz Club, which held in their delightful Terrace Gallery, is hosting the John Batiste Quartet. This is a good place for a date. $15, 7:30 & 9:30. [Ticketing]
- The Mariinsky Opera and Orchestra come from Russia to perform Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at the Kennedy Center. Based on a Pushkin novel, it follows worldly Eugene and his regrettable rejection of country girl Tatiana. Tatiana wrote Onegin a letter professing her love, mimicking a period in Tchaikovsky’s life where he too was receiving letters from a mysterious woman, professing her love. One night only.
