Hope the summer has found you all healthy and happy--with the end of the season and hiatus over I'm back and ready to dish the latest in news and opinion on the opera front. Highlights of the cupcoming month of July will include reviews of the Kirov Ring Cycle at the Metropolitan Opera and features about other summer festivals. I'd also like to do a fall preview but we'll see how much time I have in the next couple of weeks.
In other opera news I'm really excited about The Ring and about the City and Met 2007-08 schedules. I'll start doing some previews on here soon and maybe write about some great recordings.
All for now

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats
- Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
