    So, I finally did the Met Backstage Tour as part of my trip this weekend, and Roberto Alagna called our tour guide with the Facetime app so that he could wave "hi" to us. What a nice guy!

    For me, it's one of the Met's most exciting recent productions. And my trip to NYC to see it is less than 3 weeks away! *excited* I can understand it's not to everyone's taste though.

    You are correct on #6! #2 is a good guess, they did that one this year. This time La Boheme is up. I'll post the rest in the 2018-2019 Season post.

    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...

    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.

    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"...
