Ned Rorem in New York - 30 September, 1981

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 331:

With Ellen tonight to the Whitney to witness Histoire du soldat, starring, in the spoken roles, Virgil, Aaron and Roger Sessions - a delicious concept in theory, a theatrical catastrophe in practice. All three kept losing their place.
