“Say that La Cieca leaves her loge in disgust at the travesty they call Art in this opera house!”

Actually, Lohengrin at La Scala wasn’t all that bad, so the reports go. though at the moment there’s no video proof this side of the Atlantic. Your doyenne will continue to work on that little lacuna whilst you, the Cher public, enjoy your weekly discussion of off-topic and general interest subjects as you view the video after the jump.

    Since I just learned that ANOTHER STAR (Mr.Alden) is here…and that makes me worry..because I am now so afraid that some of the divas and divos i may yell at are reading me (It once happened..whre a diva said to someone,”Why does he hate me??? But I want to meet him…”)
    Seriously, I am still conflicted about modern concepts..but as La Cieca said to me, “Did you enjoy it?” and i LOVED it..but I think maybe there should be a special insert in programs that say something like,”Well,the reason that they are doing….is because………OR should I follow my mentor’s advice (La Cieca) and say..”No…it is healthy to be made to use your imagination!!”
    I did think last night of my ma in the chorus line in the 20′s when the act two scene one ended….
    Would Gigli approve?????
    I hope Mr.Alden understands I go back to the days when Nelly Melba and I dated…..
