    After taking time out for the birth of her first child last year, glamorous Latvian mezzo Elīna Garanča has been back in the studio to record a new recital-disc with Yves Abel and the Filarmonica del Teatro Comunale di Bologna. Moving on from the success of her bel canto disc, Garanca is dipping a toe into more dramatic waters with arias from Samson et Dalila and Tchaikovsky's Joan of Arc as well as rarities by Lalo, Gounod and Vaccai. Romantique is due out on Deutsche Grammophon in the autumn.

    wow, this one is discreet. I didn't even know she had been pregnant.

    Really? That's the reason why she didn't do Giovanna Seymour in the Met Anna Bolena.

    She's doing Didon in Les Troyens in Berlin next season. I might go watch.

    Will he sing Les Troyens at the ROH? Or is he out of that one for good, in favor of Bryan Hymel?

    I don't think he's doing Enče. It seems like he's doing a couple of recitals, and then starting rehearsals for his Bacchus in Salzburg.

    July issue of Opera News Magazine: boring!!!!
    You know, I'd do the summary for our News section.
    But I just can't find any motivation.

    What is wrong with Opera News Magazine?

    Should the entire editorial staff be fired?

    This is becoming more and more a stiff, uninteresting, old-fashioned, hyper-conservative bore!

    After the fight with Gelb, I was expecting that this issue would have some fireworks.

    Much the opposite, it is one of the least interesting issues I've ever read.

    I'm sick and tired of Opera News Magazine. America is a cauldron of new opera. We're actually having more world premieres than any other country. There are lots of interesting things happening. But you wouldn't tell, by reading our major operatic publication.

    These editors have no clue. None.

    I refuse to summarize this issue. It's just not worth it.

    Completely agree. This is why I subscribe to other opera magazines, as well.

    In Seattle news, Marion Oliver McCaw Garrison died. Seattle Opera's McCaw Hall is her legacy. A passionate supporter of opera, and really the arts in general. She was 95.

    Her Seattle Times obituary, HERE
