Crave the date

It only just occurred to La Cieca that the opening night of New York City Opera’s 2013 season—the premiere of their new production of Powder Her Face—is February 15, a date that sounds oddly familiar somehow.

    I don’t get it? Other than the need for certain critics to be present at the important premieres, how will this affect the audiences? NYCO will be lucky if they don’t have to paper the house.

  • Will says:

    I agree that audiences for the Ades and the Wagner most probably do not overlap too much (except for certain fanatics like me who go to everything from Monteverdi to what was written last week). My guess is that Tommasini will show up for Parsifal and Zachary Woolfe will cover NYCO, this being a good Ades year in in the city. Each may then show up for the other opera later in their runs, who knows?

  • Buster says:

    Ades will dislike Wagner even more now.
