While You Were Out
Over the weekend:
- The New York Times Travel section featured a cover profile on Ring-nuts (we call them Ringies) who travel the world to see Wagner's gesamtkunstwerk. We were quite happy then to see our good friend, San Diego opera supporter and "ringleader" Becky Hunt get a big mention in the article which you can read here.
- Although we're loudly boycotting the Emmy's because BATTLESTAR GALATICA GOT ROBBED FIVE YEARS IN A ROW we're deeply satisfied that our favorite soprano/actress Kristin Chenoweth won an award for Olive Snook in Pushing Dasies, the second best show ever on TV that nobody ever watched. So say we all! Celebratory pies for all.
- Our friends to the North of us at Opera Santa Barbara must be excited! “Wicked” composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz's new opera Seance on a Wet Afternoon premieres this weekend.
- The Met begins their season tonight with Tosca. Free simulcasts abound for our readers in NYC.
