    Rumour has it that the Barbican shop will be stocking up on knickers

    I guess if sopranos and mezzos can sing Schubert's Die Winterreise or Die schöne Müllerin, der Jonas can sing the Wesendonck Lieder or Vier Letzte Lieder . . . The Barbican has really struck gold with this residency.

    Is that Baltimore's own Marin Alsop on the podium, by any chance?

    It certainly is!

    That's what I get for reading this at lunch time. I walked into the kitchen shortly afterwards and spotted the sourdough bread and thought to myself: There is plenty for another toasted cheese sandwich!

    So much for the carrot and celery sticks.

    I'm guessing the concert performance in Santa Monica, California, in late February has also been scrapped.

    Damn I was quite looking forward to the telecast with Opolais and Kaufmann however, if he's in some of his better form (as he has been so far in most of the telecasts I've seen) Alanga would be an interesting replacement.*

    * Alanga is always a believable actor who gets into his roles. A small thing but of crucial importance.

    I bought a ticket to Rossini's La Gazza Ladra for Thursday, 25 August at Glimmerglass Opera Theater in Cooperstown, NY. Unfortunately, it will be staged with a cast completely unknown to me, so it's a bit of a crapshoot.

    https://glimmerglass.org/festival/20...ieving-magpie/

    It's rather convenient since my nephew will be getting married in Cooperstown on Saturday, 27 August. Opera and a family wedding the same weekend - what's not to like?

    The downside is another night at the ridiculously expensive Otesaga Resort Hotel. What a guy won't do for opera.

    I’m glad I didn’t make arrangements to travel to New York for one of the performances of Manon Lescaut. Truthfully, I don’t think I will ever attempt traveling anywhere again to hear der Jonas sing. He’s my favorite tenor and a really nice guy, but he also seems to be very susceptible to illnesses. Not only that, but when he does get sick, his ailments are often quite persistent and require him to cancel a number of appearances. I read in a recent interview with him that whatever infection it was that caused him to cancel his ROH appearances as Enée a few years ago took so long to heal that he even began to wonder if his singing career was at an end. I realize the poor guy can’t help it if he gets sick, but the frequency and duration of his illnesses raise the odds of a cancelation to the point that I no longer want to take the risk of a very expensive disappointment.
    Of course, were he to sing Florestan on this side of the pond . . .

    That doesn't bode well for my order for tickets to the Bayerische Staatsoper's Die Meistersinger in June, where JK is scheduled to sing Walther. It's far enough out that he might be recovered by then, of course, and the German opera houses are half the size or even smaller than the Met, so easier on his voice, but still...

    Munich won't start to sort out the ticket orders until 4 March, so won't know for a while if we even have tickets.
