Nézet-Séguin, cover boy for parterre box‘s most-read story of 2018.

That widely-publicized e-zine-cum-blog parterre box weathered the annus horribilis of 2018 quite handily, thank you, garnering 3,623,050 pageviews for the more than 1,200 articles published during the year. 

The most popular posts for the year included the announcement of the early arrival of Yannick Nézet-Séguin as the Met’s Music Director; reviews of La bohème, Elektra, Tosca and La traviata; plus breaking news of cancellation, divorce and disgrace.
