Ned Rorem in New York - 16 February, 1978

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 204:

Anita Ellis came over, late in the day, in order to say hello to Judy whom she'd never emt. They put on a great show for each other, effusing, looking theatrical and vital, like apples or gazelles. Then Judy took me to hear Adriana Lecouvreur.
