Diva of the Week
by Christie Connolley
If you are anywhere near the Northern United States you have probably been delayed due to the biggest diva of all time…. The POPE! He is walking around in billowing robes, security guards, and riding in tiny cars while kissing babies and blessing folks all while making us mere mortals laaaaaaaate…..
He is teaching the divas at the Met how this diva thing really works. Norman Lebrecht reported in Slipped Disc that the Met sent out the following notice regarding Friday’s performance of Il Trovatore.
Due to extensive street closures related to the Pope’s visit to New York City, the Met’s performance of Il Trovatore on September 25 will be delayed by 30 minutes, allowing audiences additional time to get to the Met. The performance will now start at 8:00pm and will end at approximately 10:50pm.
The pope is so diva, she could teach Kathleen Battle a thing or two …
