Norma is on Sirius tonight and in the movies this Saturday. I went to the final dress rehearsal and must've gushed so much about JDD that my grandpa asked if we should go to the HD, so I am taking him (while parents are going to be in house on Saturday)"Norma" sounded fantastic over Sirius. JDD was sublime.
I can't imagine what it would have been like from the theater, especially from the Family Circle, where I usually like to sit at the Met.I agree; I think the HD performance will be a completely different experience. I hope you will report on it; I’m interested to hear what you think.
Fortunately, his gift will remain with us for years to come.
I love it that you have a teenage Wagnerian son!!Has anyone seen the Zambello/San Francisco Opera Ring Cycle live? My younger son has recently become a Wagner devotee (19 years old, how about that?) and would thoroughly love to get the whole experience. San Francisco was the only upcoming fully staged production I could find that has some availability and is remotely accessible, but it's a big investment since it still entails travel for both of us; I don't want to spend the time or money and then be underwhelmed. Cast includes Herlitzius, Brenna, Struckmann, Grimsley, Mattila, Jovanovich. Thanks in advance.
