While You Were Out

Over the weekend:

- Conductor Leonard Slatkin has withdrawn from the Met's production of La traviata. Conductor Steven White is picking up some of the performances. Maestro White is the husband of Elizabeth Futral, who is here in town rehearsing for Violetta. We wish Maestro White all the best in his Met debut.

- Where are all the female conductors? San Diego journalist Valerie Scher asks.

- Yes. We had ourselves quite an earthquake here yesterday. The strongest the Aria Serious crew has felt in like forever. Perhaps exacerbated by the fact we were drinking. In a hammock.
