NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!From today's Los Angeles Times article detailing that James Conlon has renewed his Los Angeles Opera contract until the end of the 2017-18 (great news):Domingo’s most recent contract with L.A. Opera was set to expire at the end of the current season. But the tenor now has an “evergreen” contract with L.A. Opera that renews on a biannual basisDamn damn damn damn! I love the logic: he and his lackey Edward Baetzel nearly drive the company off the cliff into bankruptcy and *he's rewarded* with a lifetime contract. On the plus side, Mr. Conlon says the Recovered Voices program is still alive, pending $$$, but frankly, I don't believe him. It's been almost 5 years since the promised Die Tote Stadt and there's no sign that it's going to be done because, well, it's not Puccini, Verdi or something Domingo can sing in.
Henry, what is this doing on my Dale Clevenger posting? :)
Oh, I just needed to vent, Domingo should have retired in disgrace after nearly driving LAO over the cliff = Clevenger leaving under a cloud.It makes sense to me anyways! :-)
