Chat: Salome

salome-matineeWelcome to La Casa della Cieca for the matinee of Salome starting at the Met at 1:00 pm on Saturday, cher public. Please be sure to read the notice after the jump. 

After much pondering and discussion with a number of parterre associates, La Cieca has come to the conclusion that the “Rumbletalk” chat format must be discontinued as an official feature of the site. I believe that the non-archived and unmoderated nature of this chat encouraged occasional off-topic and abusive conversation that simply does not belong on parterre.com.

La Cieca encourages regular participants in the chat to participate (in a civil manner, of course) in a conversation in the Disqus comments section of this post, and I will continue to publish posts for each scheduled broadcast on the chat schedule.

I ask you to please try discussing this afternoon’s performance via Disqus. If you set the comments on “Sort by Oldest” the threads will display in chronological order.
