    I think it's time to start a 2013/2014 season thread

    I am not sure how many vocal students are reading this site, but Joyce DiDonato is hosting a master class at Julliard at 4 PM tomorrow.
    It's going to be streamed through their website.

    Nice, but 4.25 there's Bold and Beautiful and exciting stuff going currently... Stephanie gets back to Forrester Creations and the new geezer wants revange... not sure if I love all this opera stuff to give up on that and go watch Joyce coaching singers... actually, today and yesterday I've listened to some instrumental stuff... no opera in 4-5 days, dig it, I may not love it at all, not anymore, it's very much for the deeper knowledge geezers to watch stuff like that and I don't even listen to operas let alone masterclasses, I need to rethink my life I can't write operas of I don't even listen to them what can I do with my life I could be hair geezer a flowerlike maiden would come to my saloon wanting hairdo for her wedding and I would think it's my goal in life to make her beautiful hair for her wedding I would do a masterpiece on her head and feel fulfilled I would then be invited to the wedding and it would turn out she loves me not her spouse so we would fight and he would die and I would feel guilty I would devote myself to my trade I would make 32955643 hairsdos per day for free everybody would want to me to touch their hair and I myself would walk around uncombed and bearded like heremit finally the geezer I killed would appear to me as ghost and say I made enough great hairstyles for free and I'm forgiven and atoned then I would marry the flowerlike maiden and be happy but then again I think these operas still set me on, not bad thing, geezers in customes singing to each other, whose idea is that, I don't know, I like it, it inspires me better than hair.................. I may try that masterclass after all............

    It's an interesting subject. I'm a baseball fan (Washington Nationals, of course!), though not a huge sports fan overall. Without going into too much detail, the team, which is fairly new to DC, would only come to the city if the DC government first agreed to build them a new stadium. The stadium was built at a cost of about $700 million, and the team settled in DC.

    This is a common practice in the bigger cities across the country. Sometimes these sports investments pay off in improvements to underdeveloped areas of cities with few good prospects (like here in DC), but most times the economic assumptions prove to be overly optimistic and, if the teams don't win, local interest wanes (see: Miami Marlins). Stadium building at local expense is an outrageous practice, but voters like the potential morale boost and increase in local prestige, so don't seem to mind spending the huge amounts required.

    At the same time, while local governments do have arts budgets, it is a pittance, and typically one of the first budget cuts made during economic downturns. Huge sports spending? Ok. Decent arts spending (much less on opera)? Good luck with that here.

    This was a scary incident involving the Chicago Lyric Opera's production of Meistersinger yesterday that showed up in the news this morning:

    I'm heading to Chicago next week to see this production (joint production with Glyndebourne).

    Yes I read about that & hope the guy makes a complete recovery. The directors do ask a lot of artists.

    It sounds to me like that is an occupational hazard of those who make a living blowing fire. It's of course very sad it happened, but it's not very surprising.
