article

Did you guys read this article? I am posting after having read 1/4 of it because it's so fascinating and irritating.* I'm of course tickled to see that Wellsung has again influenced the Lexicon (viz: Trebs) but also look: Peter Gelb either reads the blogs or has someone do it and tell him about it. At least it sounds that way, since the Peanut Gallery @ Parterre is the place you're most likely to hear charges of "Gelb likes the lookers." Ok maybe I'll go finish the article now. Small pedantic point from the metaphor police aimed at I'm not sure whom: kvass can't be gooey.

Here's something Trebs says later in the article that ought to piss plenty of people off:

There are so many young singers he’s given opportunities to — big roles at a young age, which never happens in America. They have what they call the young artists’ programs, but what they’re really doing is putting singers in their graves. They’re sitting there in the big theaters wasting their best years, studying, covering, looking at the big stars. It’s so wrong. You can never learn to sing if you are just watching.


I am charmed by the fact that she talks about needing to work on coloratura. How I do go up and down with AN. Fortunately, the up is mostly when I'm actually watching her.

*irritating that it refers to bloggers as catty about thrice and trots out some stuff like the business about the Greek soprano...

The article is interesting but it does concern me that the author appears not to know much about the most basic aspects of music at all; to whit-- to sing sharp is not perforce to sing screechily. The author has no idea what Trebs is saying. The bar is so low these days.

*Maybe it's just that most of us apparently have cats.

Two people I'm tired of: Anna Netrebko and Hillary Clinton.

Hil's not my fave, practically a republican, but if it comes down to it, it goes without saying I'll vote for her over actual admitted republicans.

Who the hell calls her "Trebbie"?

Alex: I never heard that one either.

Who calls her Trebbie? Two less than those who call her Trebs!
although it isn't as offensive as Hep C. Or was it Hep B? Either way it didn't catch on.
