While You Were Out

It was a slow weekend in the world of opera. Here's all that developed while we were out:

- The New York Times has posted their "best and worst of Classical Music" for 2008.


- Munich Opera has announced their 2009 Festival Season and it features San Diego Opera (and Aria Serious) friend Anja Harteros in a gala concert. We must add, after listening to her cd over the weekend, this cd is the bee's knees and it would make a great stocking stuffer for all you procrastinators out there. Heck, I bought five myself. And speaking of bees and knees, where did that phrase come from in the first place?
