Christmas TV

On PBS tonight:

Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle, with mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade and tenor Bryn Terfel. There’s something off in hearing opera singers sing “Jingle Bells” (although, Terfel’s pretty good with the rhythm; but Von Stade seems stuck with the operatic training – but she does nicely with her range).

Plus, of course, “The Nutcracker” (it ain’t Christmas without seeing it, in any version you watch it).

And, tomorrow, we shall all be at work. Physically. Mentally – that’s another story. But, at least I can enjoy Christmas Eve off….
