Talk about your out of town tryouts!

Didn't I say she'd be great in this rep?

Next year Sandra Radvanovsky sings her first Lucrezia Borgia...in the Canary Islands!

Yeah, they've got a fabulous new Santiago Calatrava opera house...

Calatrava? Mai! Mai!

You don't like Calatrava? Everyone likes Calatrava.

Yup, Sondra will be great as Lucrezia. I have heard she is keen to do MARIA STUARDA as well and though the Met won't do it, how about Queler or Collegiate Chorale? Eva Podles singing the "Tourangeau" version of Elisabetta, and Eric Cutler as Leicester...

Vamos Sondra!!!

Martin Fuller, writing in the NYRB last Decemeber, does not like Calatrava.

At long last I have discovered the secret of making it through NYRB articles: just read the last paragraph.

Caro Maury: Don Juan Diego, by design, makes many role debuts at Las Palmas, because it is associated with Alfredo Kraus. (He told me, "I know he is protecting me.") Young Peppino Filianoti, too, recently sang his first Werthers there and said, "Yes, my Maestro's theatre - it is a *big* responsibility." Which is to say, Las Palmas is not at all a backwater. Rather, I think, the backwaters are the houses that give us artists of Radvanovsky's caliber as, say, Rosalinda instead of Lucrezia Borgia, Maria Stuarda, Norma...

Chere Fille, well I don't mean to call it a backwater exactly, it's just...they're hundreds of miles from any sizeable opera-loving public, aren't they? I guess perhaps it's simply comparable to trying out a role at Santa Fe. If Santa Fe were surrounded by water, and off the coast of another continent. I'm really not being Americocentric here, though I do love my Met. It's just they treat some artists a lot better than others. Listen, when you and I and a few of our blogger friends run the joint...

Caro Muori,

they're hundreds of miles from any sizeable opera-loving public, aren't they?

I've not yet been to Las Palmas, but I hear tell that the public is both passionate and discerning. And with Ryanair and the like, what's a few hundred miles for rabid florezidos and friends?

xxo, v.f.

Twas a quote from Forza.

No wonder I didn't recognize it.

What does an airline tx cost round trip to the Canary Islands, anyway?
