    Completely pumped for tonight’s prima of Prince Igor!!

    I’ve been streaming the Kirov recording (Gergiev) this past week on Spotify (who would have guessed they had it?) and loving the music!

    I hope Tcherniakov’s first New York outing rivals his many splendid accomplishments in Europe!

    Even without the sexy bodies, the Novice’s “I’m done for” scene really stands out musically in an opera with many great musical moments. That was true for this perf too.
