Richard Boyum

What superb memories of these shows! Orfeo was a particular revelation for me. I had first seen Jane Glover at Glimmerglass and now knew that COT was going to go places. Schweik was a gift of an opera rarely heard but so necessary. Keep up these memoirs!

But we do not live in the past do we! After seeing the COT Flute four times (when I swore I could only see one because of Flute fatigue,) Christine Goerke has redefined Elektra at Lyric. Hampson, Furlanetto, and Stoyanova are wonderful in Boccanegra and COT alum Evan Boyer makes the role of Pietro another step in what is a fine career.

Still, one cannot stay home when the Canadian Opera Company is scandalizing Toronto with Fledermaus directed by Christopher Alden. I must see what the old guard is clucking about! To round out this weekend with Trovatore and a typically strong COC cast.

We miss you in Chicago. Yes, we do have clothes closets...cannot do without them.


Oh how really nice to read this!!! Give my love to the Toronto gang!
