Fresh ink

This is a historic day for my White Nights. The "reclamation" of all the previous work is done, and today saw the first entries to an actual score (as opposed to text outlines) of Scene 8, At the Opera. The eight-year-old outline is incomplete, and (what is probably a new notion) I tinkered today with an introduction. But all the raw material is there, courtesy of Rossini, and I simply need to teach myself the art of collage. And I have the patience for trial-&-error.
