The Play that Goes Wrong is unlike anything you've ever seen.

 

Unless you've seen Noises Off.

In that case, who plays the sardines?

We listened to the broadcast of Thomas Adès's The Exterminating Angel on BBC 3 last Saturday, and decided that since there are very few Met operas that interest us this coming season, we will spring for better seats in the house so we can actually see everything. (Instead of our usual nosebleed territory seats) We may still go to the HD as well.

 

BTW: Their new production of Cosi is set in 1950s Coney Island. Hmmm . . .:unsure:

Man, Alastair Macaulay must have gotten up on the wrong side of his bed when he saw Souvenir d'Un Lieu Cher. I thought the ballet was pretty good.

 

Sarah Lane is way overdue to be promoted to principal.

 

It's sort of sad (for me) that the Met is poaching the ABT orchestra's concertmaster, though.


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

Good for the Met, though.  I thought Bowman played like an angel.  (Great name for a violinist, too.)

 

I haven't read Macaulay yet.  I can't imagine what there is not to like about Souvenir d'Un Lieu Cher.

 

They certainly have some principal slots open now.  (Let's not forget Cassandra Trenary, either.)

Welp, good timing, but I guess they did forget Trenary: https://www.nytimes....-4-dancers.html

 

I dunno why, but I wasn't as amazed by Shevchenko's dancing in Mozartiana last night as I was by Lane's in Souvenir. Then again, Hallberg's just so damn good.

Oh, wow, I guess this betrays how little I follow ABT news, but what a shame about Part.
