I'd just like to pause in our Marathon of Mariinsky Mahler Madness to shout out to my good friend and colleague, the ever-entertaining James Jorden. The writer of Parterre Box has taken on the controversial subject of stage direction in opera with his new blog, Rough and Regie over on the Musical America site. The first post is called "Beyond the Bathrobe."
I hope you all enjoy it. But not as much as you enjoy Superconductor. Or at least, not as much as I enjoy Superconductor. Well, maybe a little bit.
OK. Back to work!

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.
