Another Chance to See Melody Moore

If you're willing to stand, that is: I just heard that Angela Gheorghiu has withdrawn from tonight's performance on account of flu. The performance is sold out; there are tickets available for tomorrow's 2 p.m. matinee with Patricia Racette.

Flu, my ass, if I may be so blunt. And good for Angela, Exiting as a Perfect Diva in the same way she Arrived. I have a friend who's a supernumerary in the tired old production who plaintively wished he could be similarly "indisposed" since he's so sick of it, but then, he's not a diva.

Ha. Well, I have no personal knowledge myself. I opted for Racette, who was the most dramatically convincing and non-irritating Tosca I have seen. (Sang pretty well too!)

I wonder when they'll replace the production. This is fifth go-round since 1997. Some day!
