        Dear Listers,                   21 March 1998

        My wife Karoline and I are flyng to Vienna on Monday for Leonie
Rysanek's
        Requiem Mass.  We feel we are needed.  On Weds. or Thursday we will
visit the
        grave and take photos.  This was such a sudden decision that we
have no place
        to stay and no notion of what is happing at the Staatsoper from
March 25-29.

        I have misplaced Maria Nockin's email address and am getting no
responses
        to our email from Leonie's biographer, Dr. Peter Dusek, who is
President of
        the Friends of the Wiener Staatsoper.  Does anyone know his home
phone number so
        we can call him for help?  His home address?  Please reply ASAP!!!

        There are so many travelers among you and so many Europeans can someone
        please recommend a hotel within a reasonable distance of the
Staatsoper that
        is really inexpensive.  If we have to go a distance from the
Staatsoper we
        will need to be very near a subway stop as I have pretty bad arthritis.
        Please, please help as we are bankrupting ourselves on airfares and
must pinch
        every penny once we get there.  This is a labor of love beyond my
widest
        imagination and we need the help of listers in Vienna and
everywhere if we
        are to return intact and solvent.

        We will barely get to pack as today and tomorrow are the annual
fundraiser
        for the California Horticultural Society of which I am VP and I
will be playing
        the role of silent auctioneer and "the wizard of plant
knowledge"--robe, mitre
        and all--at the sale,  running the silent auction of rare plants,
and selling at
        the public sale of plants grown by members.

        You see I have not only run OEI since 1965 but have been a licensed
garden
        designer and nurseryperson since 1972.  The original bifurcated
man.  The
        gardens pay for the opera passion but not all that well so PLEASE HELP.
        Thank you all in advance.

        Warmly,

        Michael Barclay, OEI  [log in to unmask]   www.operalover.net
