KM as EM

Just a reminder that Vec Makropoulos (The Makropoulos Case or, in older translations, The Makropoulos Affair) opens this Wednesday, November 10, at San Francisco Opera. It's an early performance; curtain is at 7:30, and it's a short opera. Not to be missed!

Finally something interesting! I was lucky enough to catch this in 2000 at the Aix en Provence festival with Anja Silja as EM with Rattle conducting. Even without understanding a word (the supertitles were in French of course) it was riveting.

Yeah, it's the highlight of the season for me. Can't imagine a more suitable singer for the role, given KM's beauty and inborn glamor!

My first SF Opera outing of the season -- at last the excitement commences!
