    James Valenti is appearing in Don Carlo again (this time in Italian) in Austin in November. Michael Chioldi about whom I have heard good things sings Rodrigo. If I were still down in that neck of the woods I would go to this.

    Manhattan School of Music is performing The Mother of Us All December 11&15. I would LOVE to see this opera again. Does MSM put on a good show? Would it be worth a train ride up to NYC?
