Ned Rorem in New York - 3 May, 1987

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 83:

Dialogues des Carmélites in English on the tube. During the final Salve Regina tears stream down my face, as much for the memories of the Paris première exactly thirty years ago (at the party afterward chez Dugardin, rue de l'Université, I saw Cocteau for the last time), as for the vital performance tonight.
