    Thank you so much. I do wonder why opera houses make their new season so difficult to find. You'd think they'd want to make it as easy as possible.

    Royal Opera House.

    The website design has come in for a huge amount of criticism and we've been pleading for a straightforward list, in chronological order with all the singers listed and with their full name, not just surnames. I hope ROH listens.

    and that does look like a mighty tasty season. It looks like the ROH is celebrating my departure.

    Met live in HD has several new productions that interest me, this season:

    Akhnaten on November 23
    Wozzeck on January 11
    Porgy and Bess on February 1
    Agrippina on Feb 29
    Der Fliegende Holländer on March 14
    -------
    Repertoire productions that I've seen already, therefore I'm less inclined to go see again, include:
    Turandot on Oct 12
    Manon on Oct 26
    Madama Butterfly on Nov 9
    Tosca on Apr 11
    Maria Stuarda on May 9
