She's Really Retiring.
A real touch of sadness today, as I received a notice about the San Francisco Opera Guild's fund-raiser in honor of Frederica von Stade. The great mezzo announced in 2008 that her last performances would be in 2010, and that date is rapidly approaching. SFO gave Marilyn Horne a grand send-off, with a gala in her honor, and I hope there will be a similar concert for Flicka.
