Cher Public

Don’t mask, don’t tell

But do chat this afternoon, cher public, during the season opener of the Metropolitan Opera’s 2012-2013 Saturday matinee broadcasts: Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera, starring Sondra Radvanovsky, Marcelo Álvarez and Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Discussion commences promptly at 1:00 PM ET. (Photo: Ken Howard)
