Topix Opera News

I discovered a new link today that shows stories about opera, and I've added it to my links list.  It says it's in Fair Oaks, CA, just down the road from me, but it doesn't show any way to contact them.

I've been thinking of starting to post news about opera when it comes my way.  The latest big item is that the orchestra and chorus of the New York City Opera are threatening to strike.  The current managers are trying to turn it into something like the Sacramento Opera rather than a major cultural institution in America's largest city.  We'll see.

I didn't mind the Faust production that played in HD last Saturday, but I may be the only one.  The problem the producers of this opera are having is that they don't think anyone really believes in the devil any more.
