    It had been my intention to review the fledgling San Antonio Opera's "Macbeth" with Nadja Michael. But the acoustics were *TERRIBLE* so I don't have many nice things to say. The Tobin Center was...

    No, just to the farthest of the 4! LOL. Sorry I didn't make that clear. As soon as I make enough money, I promise to donate to more. But Dallas makes me the most excited. And I don't even...

    WHAT?!?!? Sweet! Dallas Opera knocking it out of the ballpark again. I just became a donor this month, even though I can barely afford it, and they're the farthest of the 4 main opera companies in...

    Yes, it did! I got lucky and found a last-minute returned ticket. Front row of Dress Circle. Most expensive ticket I've bought yet to an opera, but worth every penny.

    I liked Carsen's production even better than I thought I would! Maybe my expectations were lowered... and I am already very forgiving on interesting/alternate takes (but I don't have a history with...

    That's a thing at almost every concert or sporting event in the U.S. It's an impatience to get to the car and zoom out of the parking garage before the inevitable, massive traffic jam. We don't...

    Sometimes when Iím watching an opera for the first time, Iíll study up a little: listening to it, reading synopses and articles. But other times, I watch them completely blind; if Iím familiar with...

    Well, she probably means it doesn't sound like her favorite 40-50 year old recordings of Mozart... If I'm being less cynical, I'll say maybe she's really familiar with "period performance practice"...

    Fascinating footage. Not exactly strong material (gift shop management upheaval!), but the access they are given is remarkable, and the frankness of some of the people on camera.

    Today I saw for the first time that somebody had box office results which included the Met Live in HD numbers. I was surprised; I've never seen Fathom Events' figures reported (and indeed, I still...

    That's definitely a thing, and furthermore the receptiveness of the audience can have an effect on your own perception. I see it all the time in film screenings, when the product is of course the...

    The last performance of Onegin on 4/22 also very recently sold out. I was very surprised that it did so quickly, as I had checked last week and there were plenty left in the rear sections, so I...

    Okay, I'm ready to ask forgiveness; I've been a foolish dilettante, a hypocritical charlatan. Or perhaps I've been something else, I'll have to ask somebody who knows what those words mean.
