Season of the sick

The impression I got from someone there for Friday's Tristan seemed to back up the general consensus: Gary Lehman with an attractive voice made a real success as Tristan, while Janice Baird wasn't so effective though still impressive given the circumstances. A real event, anyway.

Meanwhile, via the AP report, it seems that Ermonela Jaho, who subbed in for Netrebko in a Covent Garden Traviata this January, had a similar Met debut last night for Ruth Ann Swenson. I was across the plaza for King Arthur (great music, fun but entirely forgettable production), so I've no details myself.

Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
