I've already heard good things about the new documentary The Audition, which is about "the intense pressures young opera singers face as they struggle to succeed in one of the most challenging professions in the performing arts," according to a Metropolitan Opera email I received a couple of days ago. The film will be broadcast on public TV this Sunday, April 19, and 3 p.m. Yeah, sigh, mid-afternoon in early spring, when we'd all prefer watching TV to enjoying a park, the waterfront, or working in our gardens. But do try to catch it.
