by Richard Sasanow - May 20, 2015

The Met was running on all cylinders for the last performance of the season, with Verdi's UN BALLO IN MASCHERA in an energized version of the production that premiered in 2012. The trio of principals--soprano Sondra Radvanovsky as Amelia, tenor Piotr Beczala as Gustavo and baritone Alexey Markov as Anckarstrom--gave ringing, heart-felt performances in a concept from David Alden that previously seemed half-baked. Now, the singing and acting were so good that one could forget the conceit's shortcomings. (more...)

by Richard Sasanow - Mar 2, 2015

Maria Callas got the world used to hearing singing that was not always pitch-perfect yet still essential listening.

BWW Reviews: WIDOW is Not Very Merry with Fleming in Charge at the MetBWW Reviews: WIDOW is Not Very Merry with Fleming in Charge at the Met

How bad is the new production of Franz Lehar's THE MERRY WIDOW (DIE LUSTIGE WITWE)? Let me count the ways. (more...)
