    Lucy Crowe was superb as Servilia (at least in Live in HD) in the 2012-2013 “La Clemenza di Tito” at the MET. I thought that Crowe, Elina Garanca, Kate Lindsey, and Barbara Frittoli were an aural and visual feast in that production. Right place, right time, right mix of artists. I would never have thought of Lucy Crowe as Marguerite, though.

    Rupert Christiansen seems to be quite smitten with Lucy: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/glyndebourne/9255412/Glyndebourne-interview-with-soprano-Lucy-Crowe-ahead-of-Little-Vixen.html

    Speaking of Lorna Haywood, anyone got memories of her worth sharing? I am too young (and too American) to have experienced her career, but I recently worked very closely with her when she directed Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicci at Opera San Jose and she was full of stories.

    Was someone speaking of Lorna Haywood? I remember her, whether it is worth sharing or not I am not sure, mostly as Musetta in an ENO La Boheme with Valerie Masterson as Mimi and David Rendall as Rodolfo, in a production by Jean-Claude Auvray, Haywood was very good, flamboyant in the role,I brought some friends to see my beloved Valerie and they were knocked out by Haywood more than by her, which was not what I intended but I didn’t really mind. Also Rendall sang gloriously in those performances.
