Be very afraid

Turn of the Screw is an incredibly frightening ghost story really at the heart of it but with a very modern edge. It’s being directed by a guy who’s an ’80s horror film fanatic [Sam Buntrock]. It’s not a season for the opera insiders. It’s the season for everyone in New York.” [Huffington Post]

    Some like it dark. Those Vlaamse people are at it again!

    Perhaps the busy-as-a-beaver J.D. McClatchy can produce a SCREWGE MC DUCK suitable for a NYCO children’s show in Central Park.

    I though David Cushing mediocre in BALLO--and worse in ASSEDIO DI CORINTO a few years back in Baltimore.

    And speaking of mediocre, why on earth is Stefan Kocan singing at the Met and LOC? His Ramfis tonight was third-rate provincial. I just don’t get it. Someone’s partner? Powerful representation? Miklos Sebestyen as the King was not much better. Where have all the basses gone?

    I could sing little Flora *tomorrow*-- it’s a question of color and tessitura.

    You DO know I originated Ellen Orford at the Met, back under Eddie Johnson, who had sent me on to replace Milanov in TROVATORE opposite Warren--an artist of equal stature to mine--and asked me for Donna Anna with Pinza rather than (unlike Bing who ignored the fact that I was doing Eboli, Carmen and all my RING roles during the Festwochen and at the Garden)… Marcellina?

    Speaking of horror stories, INTERMEZZO via Bloomberg notes that the Met is floating a major bond issue to get out of its fiscal hole and fall 2012 box office is down.

    OT: 26 people were shot and killed at a elementary school in Connecticut, among those 18 children.
