    The great Irish poet, scholar, and Nobel Prize winner, Seamus Heaney, has just died. It's fair to mention him here because although he only attended the opera seven times in his whole life, he did...

    Found it! My researching skills have failed me because I can't find the version he published later, but here is the shorter pastiche celebrating P&M that Proust sent to his friend and lover (and...

    Why, mon cher Luiz, my Proust goes where I go--on my iPad! I have two English translations and the original French, although the latter is a public domain text, and not my definitive 1988 La Pléiade...

    Gotta say I completely agree with Anthony as your quote stresses composers--that is, in "new compositions". Great! Write a new composition to use countertenors and glass harmonicas! I support that!...

    OK, I know you want to give everyone fair shake, but I promise you, this is definitely a book on Parsifal to give a pass to :)

    Did she have more than just a slight nose job? I know she blamed it on her vocal problems later, but I thought that was simply because she overdid the performing.

    Ummm..., but what do you mean by 'raw'? Cool? I thought it was a synonym for 'hot'?

    LOL- maybe I'm over-thinking lyrics (because outside of opera, when did lyrics ever have to make sense?)
