What - oh, wrong opera.
Anyway, last night was Opening Night at the Met, one of the most highly awaited in years. James Levine returned to the pit after spending most of the year on the DL, and Robert Lepage's new, high-tech production of Wagner's Das Rheingold - the opening of the Ring cycle - provoking equal amounts of anticipation and apprehension. So how did it go? Well, mostly good according to the Times.
A week from Saturday (i.e. October 9), you'll be able to catch a live HD telecast of Rheingold in your local theater. On balance, I'd say - don't miss it. ◙
