    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!
