Encouraging young things to grow

La Cieca has just reviewed the parterre circulation numbers and she is delighted and not a little perplexed to note that the day of the Great Opera News Kerfuffle provided our site with the highest number of pageviews in history, a total of 33,565 views in the 24 hours of Tuesday May 22. Thanks to this story and the WQXR drama a few weeks earlier, parterre is on track for its busiest month ever.

And speaking of the Recent Unpleasantness, the excellent Billevesées brings some insider knowledge to the ongoing discussion, specifically the relationship among the Met, the Guild and Opera News.

    I just dicovered that in the June 4th issue of New York Magazine in Justin Davidson’s article on Gelb, “The Met on Mute”, the comment I made here on Parterre Box was quoted in the article.
    My claim to fame!

    Is that the Simpsons Mr. Sparkle logo that Gelb’s face is plastered on? Awesome! Or, as Peter Sparkle would say, “I’m disrespectful to dirt! Can you see I am serious?” (A la http://www.milkandcookies.com/link/20638/detail/ )
