From the Department of Really!?

Word from the Met is that Maestro Leonard Slatkin, who is conducting the revival of La traviata showed up to rehearsals without fully knowing the score. He figured "since everyone else in the house knew it, I would learn a great deal from the masters."

Which prompts us to add (because now we feel we must), our La traviata conductor Renato Palumbo knows it and knows it quite well.
