bette_blindWho knows better than Peter Gelb that “into each life some rain must fall” — especially now, when the Met honcho may have to replace a director who was the rock upon which was built the upcoming season?

    Stephen Wadsworth! Competent, pleasantly
    conventional, just about right for Boris!
    Lucky he’s available. That’s a huge amount
    of work on short notice.

    • orfeoedeuridice says:

      Will he keep the same sets as seen in the Godunov director video on the Met’s website?

  • Will says:

    The way the MET works, these sets will already have been built and may have gone through technical rehearsals or be about to do so this summer, so yes — Mr. Wadsworth will have to work withing the sets conceived as part of another director’s concept.

    Oh goody, Betsy came to your aid, leboyfriend!
    I cannot record it so I’m happy someone is able to do so for you.
    So far the palm goes to the men, excellent all. Eboli’s Veil Song (Fedora Barbieri) restricted to one verse, as well the romanza of Elisabetta (Delia Rigal).

    Robert Merrill the excellent Marchese di Posa, with Fritz Stiedry conducting.

    Speaking of little Renata,of the many Don Carlo’s I’ve caught at the Met, I must say that her Elisabetta is one I’ll always remember and cherish (1979).
