Today marks the premiere of the Operavore radio show on WQXR, and La Cieca (pictured) invites you all to share in the merriment at 12:30 PM EST.

    La Cieca:

    I loved your segment and wonder whether you have read any of the comments on the WQXR site. One very serious opera lover feels that “Respect ought to be shown to those many operavores who take their opera seriously and view it as one of the higher forms of performance art.” How dare you not be more serious? Read the comment in its entirety: it’s from a certain completely humorless “Paul from Bergenfield, NJ.”
