I remembered I still have my copy of the WNBC News segment-Green Fairy is the End of Civilisation for us to enjoy @ Fairy Fest. It's pretty funny.
Now I just have to remember to remember it in June. And not lose it when I move next month.

I'm just afraid not to be able to attend anything before the GT because the train arrive around 7 pm (not sure, must check) and we will need to drop our things at the hotel and eat a little something before going to the GT.

We will stay for two nights so if there's anything interesting going on on the next day, that could be interesting if I'm not too wasted.

Dear Wolfgang,
sorry, missed some info on the first glance at your post. I will see if any thing is happening of operatic interet on 29 June. Maybe we can go see something before the Juice Joint opens. Maybe there is a recital or something...

Oh Pablo, Pablo, Pablo! E lucevan le stelle is the most beautiful aria...just makes me swoon! Cant get enought of that! I once had a juicy tenor sing that to me under the stars during a meteor shower. oh baby, I found some opera lovers in this dank place.

Wolfgang-that Sat Rigoletto @the Met is SOLD OUT. I am seeing Tosca at City Opera tonight. Gotta get my "E lucevan le stelle" fix.

I bet I can get us some live opera for the gathering, but we must have a piano. Not sure how all the boys will like that though....opera is not everyone's Cup of Tea.

Tosca


Casting

Tosca: Maria Guleghina
Cavaradossi: Luciano Pavarotti
Scarpia: James Morris

Conducted by: James Levine




Yes, Placido the great is now conducting but Nucci is still signing... And for you lucky NewYorkers, too late it's sold out. I won't comment on Pavarotti's actual voice but would you miss the chance to ear Calas even if it was for one of her late appearance ?

What am I doing in this operatically frozen Montreal ?!

WOW. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT.
BEST POSSIBLE: JOSE CARERRAS PERFORMING IN TOSCA (BEFORE THE LARYNX CANCER). THE STARS WERE SHINING BRINGS ME TO TEARS, ESPECIALLY WHEN DRUNK AND FEELING NOSTALGIC.

Torty:
I just saw that you'r an opera manager ! Not for the Metropolitan ?

...It's sad that the season will be over but it would have been great to listen to an opera just before going to the GT...

Torty muh dear,

Head's a gentleman, but he's thin succor in the manly dept. The Liberty Bell is still crack shy.

Horses? Egads! I am a small woman and find size to be an overated quality in a gentleman.

so gentlemen you complain about the lack of women in the forum. I snuck in here without any fanfare, but I assure you I am woman enough for all (with all due respect to my forum sisters of course)

I would go as far as to say NYC is paradise. Where else can you see John Malkovitch on the subway? I offer my service as body guard and guide to anyone desiring such assistance.

Crowlster,

No fear brother! I'll talk ya in when the venue is set. Don't sweat The City. Since Rudy, it's a playground surpassing Las Vegas to make you feel comfortable to relieve the weight in you wallet.

The only times I've been to NYC were passing through JFK, going out and coming in from overseas.
I wouldn't know how to find a thing there. Would you be a kind gent and pass along the directions of travel? I might be asking alot, but I'm kind of paranoid: I live right outside of Chicago and am nearly petrified of going into that pit...I mean city. I don't know what my fear is, as I've never really tried to explore it's inner workings.
Anyhow, I would really love to come just such an event!
Maybe one of us forumites can make up a 'flyer' to pass out in email form? Kind of like those impersonal (by that I mean VERY impersonal) e cards. Any thoughts on that?
