UPDATE: Nice try, cher public, but it’s not Lisette Oropesa but Andriana Chuchman (pictured) who will sing the first performances of L’elisir d’amore, replacing Anna Netrebko ”who has withdrawn from the first two performances of the run because she is suffering from the flu.” Read more »
La Cieca (right) has started arranging her engagment book for the autumn season as best she can, what with this thing, that thing and the other. But she’s also interested (if only in passing) on what you, the cher public (left) plan to see here in New York City between now and the end of 2013. Utterly scientific polls follow the jump.

With the Met’s single tickets for the 2012-13 season going on sale Sunday morning, it’s surely about time we, the movers and shakers and parterrians, made our customary ukase on which of the company’s attractions are worth seeing this year and which, not so much.
Tanned, rested and ready to present, La Cieca invites you, the cher public, to vote on the best, worst and most egregious opera performances of the 2012-2013 season.
Now that the retirement of James Levine is basically just a matter of patiently waiting out 18 months of inaction, it’s about time you, the cher public, were heard on the subject of the appointment of a new music director for the Met. A couple of polls for you after the jump.
It will come to no surprise to the parterriani (though perhaps something of a relief to Peter Gelb) that the most coveted ticket of the fall season in New York is Anna Bolena, the Donizetti premiere at the Met featuring Anna Netrebko‘s lovely head. Complete results of the more than 1,100 votes cast in the Fall Poll after the jump.
La Cieca (pictured, center) reminds the cher public that it is very rapidly becoming “that time of year again,” and so, and while we have a brief respite from the flurry of Met press releases, you are invited to select your most anticipated performances of the fall.
At long last (or, anyway, a whole year later) La Cieca (pictured) is delighted to announce the event of events here at parterre.com, the 2010-2011 Parterre Cher Public Choice Awards. You, the aforementioned cher public, now have your chance to vote on the best, the worst and the most divalicious events of the season, as nominated by La Cieca’s hand-picked Blue Ribbon panel of experts. Watch for the results of this poll at the end of next week, when the coveted “Pubies” will be awarded.
