October has begun + News about Tosca in NY

In 2004 it was Verdi Gala in Parma on October 10th. This year it will be Carmen in Munich on October 10th. I am so looking forward to that performance.

+ October 10th Tosca from the Met in HD? Maybe in a cinema near you...

Marcelo Alvarez has, it appears, called the new Tosca at the Met a car-wreck. Maybe the interviewer put that word in his mouth. La Cieca thinks he may regret that news article.
