    Sometimes one just has to go with what is available, so just bought a ticket for this Wednesday's performance by the National Symphony:

    Tristan und Isolde, Act II

    Conducted by Gianandrea Noseda

    Isolde: Christine Goerke
    Tristan: Stephen Gould
    Brangäne: Ekaterina Gubanova
    King Marke: Günther Groissböck
    Kurwenal: Hunter Enoch

    In theory, I'm going to Chicago in April to see my first full Ring Cycle (!).

    If COVID-19 doesn't ruin everything.... I'll try and review it.

    It's so depressing. I've got a ticket for Jenůfa on 24 March at ROH but I don't know whether it will still be on.

    I do fear the worst for you, if they even cancel soccer games......
    In my country the advice is all above 100 person are not allowed, so almost all theaters are closed, even the Concert Gebouw orchestra is closed .

    The Cincinnati Museum Center has just announced its closing, effective today. The new Mayan exhibit was supposed to open today, and Museum Center officials had initially announced plans to restrict attendance to groups of up to 100 in shifts. Guess they decided even that was too great a risk. The Met has scrapped its Live in HD relay today, and the Cincinnati Opera has also cancelled some community events scheduled for this month. I'm wondering about the three opera magazines I receive from Europe (Das Opernglas, Opernwelt, and Opera Now) and the possibility that air mail will be disrupted by the travel ban -- I assume air mail is often carried on passenger jets.

    Forget that the UK isn't included in the travel ban, so at least the March issue of Opera Now should be arriving sometime this month. Meanwhile, the local opera company has also closed its offices, and employees are working from home. My only hope is that these preventive measures now will spare all of us even worse in the future.

    All the houses/concert halls in UK have closed.

    I feel so sorry for the artists. Not so much the established ones who will have a financial cushion but the young ones who can now see 12 - 18 months of no income at all.
