    I thought Mimi was supposed to be dying in this act. Why is she giving every phrase forte?

      Are we listening to the same thing?

        The reprise of Si mi chiamano e.g.

    this is some Class-A coughing

    Miss Blue is losing some strength -- for real . . . Mimi is not such an easy role . . .

      All in all, though, she has had a wonderful debut.

    Scotto was unequaled in those last lines of Musetta.

    A very respectable debut. Well done Angel Blue!

  • cielo e mar

    G’night all.

    • Rowna Sutin

      Night to you !

  • Camille

    Well, I don’t know. Good night parterrians.

    It’s still sad to me, after all these years and repetitions.

  • Rowna Sutin

    NICE!!!!! Great to hear the good applause!

    • H_Badger

      I think they liked it! Fantastic!

  • fletcher

    Time for her to come back to CA -- Domingo make it happen!

    Angel Blue posted this video on her facebook between Act 3 and Act 4. A great debut for her!

    I told y’all. I think the voice is very precious, it reminds me more of Mirella Freni in the sense that the voice seems to have warmth and glow instead of big-eruption volume. I thiink that if she were to wait a couple of years she could really bring justice to the roles everyone suggested. The voice is pretty agile so I would like to know how the voice carries in large halls and how well it records. She’s a very beautiful young woman and I woud not be mad at all if she had recording success as well as an important theater presence. I think I’d love to hear her sing Liù and that one aria from “La Wally”.

    I heard Angel Blue at the Wigmore Hall in London, which as an experience is probably the opposite of hearing her at the Met, but I can tell you her voice absolutely filled the space in a way perhaps only surpassed by Mattila and Podles, in my experience at that venue.
