Cher Public

Maggio musicale

On this lovely first day of May, La Cieca encourages the cher public (pictured) to offer a word of thanks to this month’s sponsors of Carnegie Hall, The InsightALT Festival and the Bayerische Staatsoper.

  • Buster

    Thank you very much, Carnegie Hall:

  • Quanto Painy Fakor

    • Will

      Was there a date ion this? He sounds very young.

  • Camille

    Is that The Millo pole which has been so gaily festooned for the day?

    Don’t know, as I never have been there.

    Carnegie Hall is my number one destination in New York City for my musical thrills. There is nothing else as good. And I should make mention of the 10% reduction in ticket prices for all Bank of America(rd) customers of Carnegie-sponsored events, which is appreciated.

    As well, please call box office—as I do not know current policies—about same-day reduced price tickets on various concerts in Stern Auditorium. It’s worth the effort.

    Carnegie Hall, I love you, and with all my heart. I always feel privileged to enter your doors.

    • Howard Hanson imagines some well-behaved Polovtsii coming to New England to dance around the maypole.

      And of course, May Day is very, very big in China:

    • papopera


      • Papopera, don’t you think this slogan is a bit, um, out of place, given the results its application brought to the world?

      • Papopera, every time you throw one of your little tantrums, I post another video :-)

      • Camille
  • Jamie01

    I’ll be at Carnegie on Saturday evening for the Renee Fleming, Emerson String Quartet, Jeremy Denk, etc. Viennese program. And I did get my tickets by clicking through from Parterre Box.

    Among other reasons for loving Carnegie, I can get home from there without switching trains at Times Square. So take that, Lincoln Center!

    And thank you Bayerische Staatsoper for the opportunity to see Kusej’s production of Macbeth.

    If this has been posted already, I apologize, but for anyone curious about what a Bartoli NORMA will sound like, her Dortmund performance is available complete on YouTube. Here’s Part 1, though she doesn’t show up till part 2. I can’t say I like any of this at all.

      For those of us who grew up listening to Callas, Sutherland, Caballe and a few lesser lights, I’m afraid Cecelia’s Norma just can’t quite compare. It’s a dizzyingly fast performance. Listen to the end of Act 1 (part 4) -- it’s a real scramble.
