Will He or Won't He?
Take the exposition repeat in the first movement of Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony, of course. Plenty of tickets, including rushes, still available for Kurt Masur's Mendelssohn program at SFS tonight and tomorrow night, which also features the complete (and absolutely wonderful) incidental music from A Midsummer Night's Dream. The overture is the best piece of music ever written by a 17-year-old. You spotted snakes, indeed!
