Operagasmic Production of the Week
by Christie Connolley
I love to arrive early to the opera. For one, I want to sit down and see what everyone else is wearing…. the gowns, the sequins, THE SHOES! Once that is done, I delve into the program! I want to read the ‘who’s who, all of the singers’ bios, and the miniature reproductions of their glossy 8 X 10′s (which I usually go back to during intermission and estimate how many years ago that photo was taken), the director’s notes, the conductor’s notes! It is one of the best parts of going to the opera! So let Operagasm get you ready with the down low on new and exciting upcoming productions.
The Operagasmic Production of the Week is Metropolitan Opera’s New Production of Manon!
A trifecta of operatic hotness has been assembled for Laurent Pelly’s new production of Massenet’s Manon.
Supermodel soprano Anna Netrebko, tenor Piotr Beczala, and baritone, Paulo Szot will appear in all their glory live in HD on Saturday, April 7, no need to bring your opera glasses. Leave the tux and sequin gown at home, oh and I think they will allow refreshments in the theatre.
