Se non e vero, e ben Trovatore

A tip of the hennin to Our Own Phoenix for his nightmarish Trovatore scenario, once again suggesting a Stefan Herheim production pushed only gently over the edge. As such, Phoenix will be the proud recipient of two tickets to WQXR’s exclusive season preview for the Met at the charming downtown Greene Space, featuring Ildar AbdrazakovIsabel Leonard, David AldenThomas Adès and (health permitting) Dolora Zajick. Congratulations, and understand that La Cieca feels just the the proudest of mother hens!
