Carnegie Hall has cancelled performances scheduled for tonight and Monday night. The Metropolitan Opera has also cancelled Monday's performance of Le Nozze di Figaro. Judging from some of the negative reviews that this revival of the company's Jonathan Miller production, this may not necessarily be a bad thing.
To tide you over in the next two days, stay tuned to Superconductor: there are reviews coming of the Friday afternoon New York Philharmonic concert, and of last night's Carnegie performance by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Meanwhile, for your Figaro fix, enjoy this complete 2006 performance from the Salzburg Festival conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt and featuring an all-star cast.
Stay safe. Stay inside. Listen to more opera. That's what we plan to do. That, and write some reviews which will post on Superconductor in the next few days, time, energy and Con Ed permitting.
