We are waiting to hear back from Yasnaya Polyana regarding
when we can visit this, prior to our show next summer. The international coordinator, Elena, is checking with Mr. Tolstoy. He seems to want to meet us as much as we want to meet him. It looks like it may be in October.
Meanwhile, we continue to have a blast in the studio. Last Friday it was Lucy, Adrienne and I together.
Unfortunately I left my copy of War and Peace somewhere, so can't say what's happening in this scene. What I do recall is a lot of borrowing when I made this, mostly from Adrienne. We call her the queen of black. -- Lola
