Freni Gala

It will be at the Met on May 15, 2005 (Sunday) at 5pm. Mark your calendars.

"On the 50th anniversary of her operatic debut and the 40th anniversary of her Met debut."

As of opening night 2002 -- the last time New York audiences heard her -- she still had the vocal goods. Mirella Freni is 70... But apparently not ready to retire.

UPDATE (5/17): Post-event thoughts here.


  1. Hello there! Are you sure that the Freni Gala at the Met is on May 15? I checked the website's calendar of events but they do not have anything posted on that day.

    I would love to hear and see my diva :)


  2. Yes, I am sure. The event won't be on the website until the event's on sale to the general public (after guild members, etc. have their dibs).

    Check the interview I linked if you want verification...

    I hope she lives up to your expectations. ;)


Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
