Tanglewood 2011 Opens With a Splash

It was that kind of night.  Just before hundreds of undaunted Boston Symphony Orchestra supporters, some local, many more, it seemed, from New York and Boston, descended on the grounds of Tanglewood to celebrate the opening of its 2011 season, it had rained.  Fortunately, the weather held throughout the cocktail hour, but when the revelers left the beautiful tent after a fabulous Italian feast overseen by Boston star chef Lydia Shire, the ground was wet again.  No matter, all remained clear for the walk over to the shed, then apparently, during the first half of the all-Italian music program, it rained like mad again.  But, with what appeared to be at least 200 musicians onstage performing the first act of Bellini’s Norma, no one noticed.  Such is the magic of Tanglewood.
