I admire your forbearance and patience, Paul.  I’m afraid that if I had been in your shoes, I 
would have given her a very loud tongue-lashing that she would have remembered for the 
rest of her life.  I tolerate no talking in the opera house once the music has started.

Cheers and all the best,


Alain Letort
