The seasons alter

La Cieca is informed that the New York City Opera and AGMA are meeting today for discussions relating to the company’s 2011-12 schedule—which, by the way, is supposed to be announced sometime this week, but La Cieca isn’t holding her breath.

    Gonna repeat the very succint comment that someone posted a few days ago ‘Let it Die’…

    There is so much baggage right now attached to NYCO- wouldn’t it be great if some wonderful donor ponied up the money to create a new opera company to fill the void (both in the NY State Theatre, and as a 2nd major opera company)? Why do none of these new tech billionaires (I’m talking to you Groupon / LinkedIn / Facebook guys) have any interest in opera…

    Could be a fun parlor game- who, in this dream scenario should run this company, both artistically & musically (and i’m putting a restraining order against zambello for this dream endeavor)

    Nothing to do with opera, but I had been looking to see that horror movie for years having forgotten its title. At long last, thanks for the tip !

    A six week concert run of that crowd-pleasing toe-tapper Moses und Aron under a big top in Central Park wouldn’t even surprise me right now. Okulitch sings, Domingo conducts.

    His recommendations seem sensible to me.
