(one operagoer's notes)
Thanks for this link! Fascinating ...Do you think Dessay's singing could make me un-hate Sonnambula? The recent Baltimore production was abysmal, and I found the plot rather thin. But I'd be willing to give it another chance.I will run screaming from Netrebko & Villazon schmoozing it up in Romeo & Juliet. Another tediously boring opera...I'm happy, though, to see Renee taking on an '08 Marschallin, as well as a new Ring production and the Gojilov commission.(And I'm very curious about that Queen of Spades production, too.)
Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
