  • Leontiny

    “I can hardly stand the sweetness of this moment”. Perfect.

  • Rowna Sutin

    Greetings Parterians. Grandkids down for a nap and I get to watch!

  • laddie

    Can I just say how wonderful it is to see such an intelligent production of this work. Refreshing.

    • Leontiny

      my sentiments exactly

  • Rowna Sutin

    I have no idea what the production means, but I have been listening for a while to the music which is glorious. Some great singing. Aside of Gerharer and Von Otter, I know no one.

  • Rowna Sutin

    Can someone fill me as to what this production is supposed to mean?

  • Leontiny

    a treat to have Marcellina’s aria

    • Nell TuoCuor

      That was stunning, but not Marcellina’s aria, I think. Did not recognize what they interpolated, but wow.

      • laddie

        Nice nod to von Otter’s career.

        • Marcello

          Abendempfindung KV 523

          • Nell TuoCuor

            Thanks a million.

          • Leontiny

            lovely choice

      • laddie

        The doors now GINORMOUS! Everyone feeling small in the universe!

    • Walther von Holzhaufen

      Does anyone know what von Otter sang? It was lovely. She’s a great artist.

      • Rowna Sutin

        Abendemfindung

        • Walther von Holzhaufen

          Thank you, Rowna. Abendempfindung. Forgive my pickiness.

          • Rowna Sutin

            I typed too fast. I used to sing this. A lot.

          • Leontiny

            It felt so right for her to have a sing given the weight she has in this production. Wonderful moment.

  • manou

    Just got back home -- is this Figaro in Lilliput?

    • laddie

      Everyone’s feeling small and vulnerable at this point in the opera. :)

      • manou

        Were they bigger before?

        • laddie

          In relation to the stage doors. Yes.

          • manou

            Grazie

  • laddie

    Stunning rendition of Deh vieni. Such a beautiful picture with the roses. Perfect control. Lovely.

    • Rowna Sutin

      I think she is an outstanding singer

  • Annina

    I have an extra ticket for tonight’s Boston Symphony Orchestra performance of Berlioz’ Damnation of Faust. Second balcony left, row B, $38. Text 218 727 7814 if interested.

  • manou

    Was there a successful trial for a different kind of chat earlier on?

  • Clivia

    I missed the closing of the door!

    • H_Badger

      i don’t know how anyone’s going to reach the handle if they have to open it again.

      • Clivia

        My thoughts exactly. But I suppose thats the humor. I like the effect.

        • H_Badger

          i love it!

  • manou

    “More amenable am I and I do” -- glad she didn’t have to sing the subtitles.

  • manou

    The end of Nozze is so fabulous

  • Rowna Sutin

    Is this divine or what ????

  • manou

    Corriam tutti a festeggiar!

  • Clivia

    Very charming. I am rooting for them all.

  • Peter

    Sublime music and sublime singing.

    • laddie

      Sublime production!

  • Leontiny

    Best 4 hours spent in ages. Thanks LaC!! And thanks everyone for what you had to say.

  • Nell TuoCuor

    La C — I ‘m so glad I saw your post in the nick of time and did not miss this. It was delightful and you are our star.

  • Nell TuoCuor

    although I was worried about Mr. Esposito there for a minute or two after Susanna kicked the stuffing out of him.
