Not April Fool's

For those who were wondering, the calendar has reached April 2 and the Met website still shows Karita Mattila, apparently suffering from back issues, out of her remaining Toscas (to be replaced by Patricia Racette) and Leonard Slatkin out of the remaining Traviatas (to be replaced by a number of people including Yves Abel).

Racette has done well here in Puccini (though not so well in Verdi), so the show may still work... if the most fragile and important back at the Met -- James Levine's -- makes it back on time. Meanwhile on last night's evidence the Tosca to see in April may be in Colorado, but more on that in a full post.

Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
