Day 110 — Theater—Meine Angemessene Dame
20-November-1971 (Sat.)

Johns famous horn photo


My Fair Lady, the musical, but in German. It was in the Theater-in-Wien, a very beautiful theater. It was very enjoyable and a good production, except that the professor didn’t sing as well.

It was interesting to hear the familiar songs but with German words. “With a little bit of love” was something like “mit a …schwickenwik,” which sounded very corny. Well, anyway, I’ll have to see more musicals.

Saw my slides of Baden—some really beautiful pictures, also some corny ones of me that Mike took, while I was taking pictures for him. My favorite publicity picture—me with my horn with Mozart in the background.


Meine Angemessene Dame. That’s My Fair Lady in German. I’m fairly certain that this was an actual theater production and not a movie. The songs were sung in German. Funny to hear when you’re used to English. As always, it’s enjoyable to see live performances of any musical venue.

John's famous horn photo and Baden slides. Well, here is the Mozart picture (see opening picture above) that we actually took on this day. According to the journal, my friend Mike took the picture. I have previously posted this picture on an earlier day, and because I still don’t have the documentation for the slides, I am probably making a few mistakes as to when the pictures were taken and posted. The Baden slides (left) were taken earlier. ay 083: Celebrating the spirit of humanity">See Day 083.
