Before you ask, cher public, there is no Issue #41 of parterre box, the queer opera zine, or, rather, this issue, #42 is the 41st of the series. La Cieca hasn’t a clue why the numbering system went to hell, but at least she didn’t let you down on content: Gossip about Madame Vera Galupe-Borszkh and Cecilia Bartoli! An interview with Catherine Malfitano! Reviews by Indiana Loiterer III, Fleur Jetée, and Fils de Brahma! ”The Ballad of Billy Budd!” Plus the first installment in the serial “All About Steve” by the ineffable Manuela Haltertop!  [Download Issue #42]
