Are you there, god? It's me, Maurgret

Dear god,

Yeah, I know, I have a lot of nerve addressing a blog entry to you, all things considered.

But, say, listen, big guy. Here's my bargain basement version of Pascal's Wager: I pretend you exist just in case; you maybe do me a favor. After that, seriously, other than Mike Huckabee not winning the election, I'll never ask you for another you-damn thing.

What I'd like, god, old buddy, old pal, is for Patricia Racette to expand her Puccini rep and cover for Karita Mattila in February, and for KM to have a cold or something not particularly unpleasant but momentarily incapacitating like that, because then Racette would go on instead and in addition to the pleasure of hearing her sing it, I could use the subject line "Manon Lesbo" for my review. In a loving way, you understand. Because it's 2008* and we can kid each other about that kind of thing. I think.

Ok, I'm gonna let you go in case you're busy coming up with more fascinating tokens of your affection like AIDS and famine and, not to reuse a punchline, but Mike Huckabee, in your infinite benevolence. But consider it, alright?

Fondly as ever,
Maurizio Q. D'Annato

Yes, eventually I'm going back to the opera so I can stop posting crap like this. Promise.

*Thanks, Gert. You win the "Maury is a Simpleton" award for this week.

I don't wish to be nic-picky, but are you sure it's 2007

(and I'm sorry, this seems like a pathetic comment to leave. I read you a lot, mainly through Bloglines but rarely comment

Gert, I sometimes wonder if it looks like I do these things on purpose...

'tis a pleasure to be read, comment when the Comment Muse moves you.

Racette is actually debuting Manon Lescaut in San Diego...in 2010. Here's hoping she brings it to the Met shortly thereafter.

Interesting choice in your bogus Pascal's Wager. Why not:

Dear God:

Please send us a gaggle of Heldentenors that can sing Wagner, Strauss and the late romantic rep and if you could, throw in a few Hoch Dramatische sopranos to sing Isolde, Brunnhilde, Elektra and Turandot? OK, just reanimate Birgit Nilsson ca. 1960, that'll do.

Asking for a bundle of Verdi sopranos, tenors and baritones would be sheer greed, so I won't bother.

Thanks God!

I guess I chose my spoils in accordance with the likelihood there's anyone across the card table from me, as it were.
