Light up the sky
Either tonight’s concert performance of I Lombardi by Opera Orchestra of New York was a “star is born” moment for Michael Fabiano, or else there is no such thing as a “star is born” moment any more. La Cieca, who always tries to look on the bright side, will simply that Fabiano sang the way opera is supposed to be sung: warm, ardent, full-throated, fully Italianate… but only to the top, not over.
Our Own JJ will have more to say about the performance later this week via the electrons of Musical America, but La Cieca will simply add, “You should have been there.”
