A visit to the opera house …

There’s an interesting article in today’s NYTimes about opera singers being put into productions at the last minute. 

The fact in the article that I find surprising is that the top appearance fee at the Met is allegedly $16,000 per performance.  And I love this quote from Peter Gelb, the GM: “They’re either coming down with a cold, suffering a cold or recovering from a cold.”
