Today marks the premiere of the Operavore radio show on WQXR, and La Cieca (pictured) invites you all to share in the merriment at 12:30 PM EST. La Casa della Cieca will be open with your doyenne in attendance for both this epochal event and what will doubtless be the anticlimax of the Met broadcast debut of Maria Stuarda immediately following.
Thanks for your feedback, cher public. La Cieca has implemented the new chat software with your suggestions at La Casa della Cieca, which will officially relaunch Thursday, January 17, at 7:25 PM for Le Comte Ory from the Met. And don’t forget Saturday, January 18 at 12;30 PM, the premiere of Operavore (featuring a certain little-known doyenne) followed by Maria Stuarda!
Elizabeth Bishop will sing Didon today at the Met, replacing an ailing Susan Graham.
But do chat this afternoon, cher public, during the season opener of the Metropolitan Opera’s 2012-2013 Saturday matinee broadcasts.
People named Jimmy or Placido don’t seem to know this, but when your brains or your bones send you the message, “Hang up the toe-shoes, Bobolink,” do it!
One of the delights of doing these weekly breakdowns is sending them in and then waiting patiently to see what sort of illustration La Cieca uses with it.
