O Mäzene!

It’s been too long, cher public, since La Cieca last lauded the true unsung heroes of parterre box: our advertisers. In the month of July, choosing parterre.com as a platform for reaching their own cher public are: the Lincoln Center Festival, presenting The Passenger; Bard SummerScape, presenting Euryanthe; and the Martina Arroyo Foundation’s Prelude to Performance, presenting La traviata and Il barbiere di Siviglia.

Your doyenne encourages you to read their ads and, more to the point, patronize their productions this summer.

    Without these sponsors we wouldn’t have threads to comment upon. Those of us from outside NYC appreciate this site very much — whether we agree with the proprietor or not.

    I’m hoping to catch at least one of the “Prelude to Performance” operas — they seem like they should be of fairly high quality. Can anyone corroborate?

    I’m happy to support anything sponsored by Roz Russell!

    When I bought my Euryanthe tickets I wondered if there was any advantage to anyone of clicking through the link here on the Parterre site.
