Trivia

In his encounter with Rodrigo outside the concert hall, Thomas says "All the world's a stage," quoting Shakespeare's As You Like It. Later, after the concert, he reconciles with his former lover Cynthia. Only then does he finish the Shakespeare quote: "And all we men and women are merely players." By "players," Shakespeare meant actors, but it works equally well to describe the musicians of the orchestra. See more »

The Play's the Thing

SPOILER: It's finally time to put the Sibelius out there. Ana Maria is out there and everything looks good, but it doesn't take long for the train to go off the rails. Hailey has been told she doesn't have what it takes to continue as an oboist. But when it's concert time, Betty has been taken on a wild goose chase and can't make it in time. Hailey gets the call. What transpires is an unprecedented event at the concert. I'm hoping that Ana Maria doesn't come back as a character. I tire of the relationship with Rodrigo and his fixation on her. What I liked about this episode is that it went back to the music and the love of the music. I also liked that Hailey is redeemed. This ends the first season with a bang.
