racette_toscaPatricia Racette will sing the title role in Puccini’s Tosca on April 14, 17, 20, and 24 matinee, replacing Karita Mattila, “who is ill” — this just in from the Met’s press office.

    Kruno@89: Thanks for the unexpected pleasure of seeing Entschiede & Gronigen mentioned here.

    Know what you mean, Cruz: Enschede and Groningen are small beer as it is -- but I’ve never even heard of these places.

    Perhaps they have special meaning for Ms Ewing, whose mother was Dutch?

    The Netherlands Touring Opera (the ‘second’ opera company in the Netherlands) visits those places with their production of La voix humaine (with Maria Ewing as the soloist in that, and L’heure espagnol as the other production).
