While You Were Out

Over the weekend:

- Sure they sing mostly heroic roles, but tenors can and do turn wild from time to time.

- And then there are tenors like Marcello Giordani, who performed two leading roles the same day at the Met. And I get tired just watching a single opera.

- A former NYCO executive whose position was eliminated when Mortier's (now aborted) directorship was first announced, has won a game of musical chairs and is now heading the Brooklyn Orchestra.
- Things are not looking so bright for Baltimore Opera, which reports that ticket sales are down for Aida. It also seems the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is facing some hard times as well.
