    Now that I've seen it myself, I completely agree with Botstein on Oresteia--lost gem in the attic indeed!

    And Oresteia will premiere in 2014-15 at the Mariinsky conducted by Gergiev! I will go, I will go! St. Pete's is just a train ride from Moscow where the wife and I have an apartment and I would love to see this again conducted by Gergiev! Now if this happens, this may be the thing that Oresteia needs to put it back on the map! (Hoffmann, at the premiere, you were mentioning Mariinsky--was this the article you were referring to?)

    I can say that the children who took part on Noye's Fludde in Auckland the other day were having a ball. As was the audience.

    If this idiot can't hear tunes in Peter Grimes, he must be skipping all the gorgeously melodious interludes.

    But the boos were drowned out by cheering and loud applause (I wonder why the last article didn't mention the cheering and applause? )
