from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 445:

Long phone take with Father this morning. Last night he watched The Magic Flute on the new color TV we took him on Saturday, and, he says, he burst into tears when Papagena removed her old woman's mask. (Mother's mask remains, we'll never by young again, music moves, etc.)
