    ATTENZIONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In an effort to bolster sales, the Met has added some material to next season’s schedule..These will be Sunday Night performances, and tickets will be available only on April 1..so hurry up and get yours:

    1. Salome with Placido as all the Jews (well,he is versatile)

    2. Das Rheingold with Justin Bieber as Alberich, and the Rhine Maidens are Lindsay Lohan, Lady Gaga, and Elton John

    3. New opera written by Dorotea Bishopskaya:
    “I Parterriani” with a cast of former Met standees who were not normal like Charlie Handelman, and who actually watched the opera.

    4. Another new work written by Arodo Rodriguez:
    “Il Stereodo nello Tushy” starring Mark McGuire, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and maybe about 350 others (TBA)

    I must compliment La Doyenne on her amazing handiwork, creative imagination and plain old churzpah on this particular thread illustration.

    It explains why La Cieca IS La Divina.

    I’ve always loved it when someone announced (on a day like today) that the complete orchestral score for Verdi’s Re Lear had been discovered in some attic…or barn.

    I want the Met to revive the Menotti Peter Pan with Justin Bieber as little Peter, Kristin Chenoweth as Tinker Bell and Kevin Spacey as Captain Hook.
