The Nit de la Poesia

Last Wednesday night was the Nit de la Poesia and the culmination of the Festival de Poesia de la Mediterrània. The annual multi-lingual, inspiring event, now in its 13th year, was staged at the Teatre Principal in Palma. This year, there were participating poets from Morocco, France, Ukraine, Haiti, El Salvador and Zimbabwe, as well as Spain, Catalunya and, of course, Mallorca. Sadly, I was not allowed in by the doorman. Wednesday night was also the night of the Mahler rehearsal, if you remember. The Symphony No. 3 practice session had me late for the poetry festival, and my polite request for admission, albeit somewhat late, was duly rejected. Well, what can I say? To be fair, though, I was allowed into the foyer to purchase a book of the event, a programme so to speak, for the very decent price of 2 €.

I can tell that you did not make it either. What’s your excuse?

The photo (top) was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 25th, 2011. The time was 22:40:44. The photo (bottom) was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of and the photographer, Manu Mielniezuk.

Muchas gracias.
