Natalie Dessay's Lucia at the Met last night

Apparently the Met uploaded the mad scene to YouTube.

UPDATE:

And they're gone. Rats, I didn't get a chance to save. :-/

Kiri Te Kanawa saves the Vancouver Recital Society

News from Vancouver:

Because of the ongoing civic strike closing down the Orpheum, fans were worried the much anticipated show [Kiri's first stop on her Farewell Recital Tour] would either be cancelled or moved to a venue, as the Sun reported, like a car dealership.
To accommodate ticket holders the soprano will now perform two shows, one on September 20 at 8 p.m. and another on September 23 at 8 p.m.
"We are most fortunate that Vancouver is the first date on the farewell tour," says Leila Getz, Artistic & Executive Director of the VRS.
"Dame Kiri is willing to come to Vancouver earlier than planned to perform an additional concert in order to accommodate the re-allocation of all ticket holders into the smaller Chan Centre venue. She has been extraordinarily generous."

My understanding is that she agreed to this without doubling her fee.

Should Anna Netrebko shut up?

Recent interviews have shown Anna Netrebko to be something of a flake. Boy is she entertaining. I say give her a reality show. After all, mainstream culture has Paris, Lindsay and Britney. We have Anna.
