“I have learned by the perfectest report they have more in them than mortal knowledge.”
Don’t let the headline worry you, cher public, what’s coming up after the jump is meant to be good clean fun, with a prize even.
La Cieca thinks it would be fun for the cher public to play George Steel (or, given the difficulty of the task, Superman) and devise an upcoming season for NYCO.
Where has the time gone? La Cieca was just reminded this morning that on Tuesday the 2012 recipients of the F. Paul Driscoll Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence (aka The Opera News Award) will be named. Though your doyenne has no details yet about which lucky opera types are to be lauded this year, the impending news does give her an idea.
It’s Saturday afternoon, which of course means only one thing, the parterre chat, which today will be focused on Verdi’s Il trovatore, starring, in the demanding dual roles of Leonora and Conte di Luna, Joyce DiDonato.
