News for Today
The big news in the opera world today is the smash hit performance of Angela Meade and Jamie Barton at the Met in Norma. To hear what a truly wailed Norma sounds like look for the audio clip here. It is remarkable how well their voices go together. I hope they like each other because I think there may be many more Normas in their future.
Other important news: I have heard only good things about Fliegende Hollander at the San Francisco Opera. I'm going on Halloween. And on the following day on PBS is Moby Dick.
