San Francisco Opera
Yet another singer is having some vocal difficulties which have resulted in cancellations. I am very sorry that we will not get to hear Diana Damrau sing Lucia di Lammermoor. She will be replaced by Nadine Sierra.
Tuesday, day after tomorrow, is the day when the new General Manager of the San Francisco Opera will be announced. I will post it here as soon as I know.
And over at the MetHere is an article I could have written myself: The 8 Sexiest Stars at the Metropolitan Opera This Season. Most have already appeared in my sexiest lists. In order they are
- Kristine Opolais (I gave her a whole page spread),
- Jonas Kaufmann (I've been listing him for years),
- Marlis Peterson who will sing Lulu,
- Roberto Alagna (I've been following him for a long time),
- Anna Netrebko (she was in my very first list),
- Vittorio Grigolo (Very fond of him),
- Isabel Leonard (called her fascinating), and
- Paolo Szot (I said a lot of nice things about him in The Nose but he hasn't appeared in any lists. Apologies.).
