Blog You Like a Hurricane

First: a Hurricane Irene update.

Although I'm not really sure why you should be getting your hurricane news from a classical music site, I can tell you that the onset of Hurricane Irene has put a damper (pun intended) on music activities this weekend in New York City.
  • Tomorrow night's season-ending performance of the Mozart Requiem has been cancelled, which makes tonight's show the last of a highly successful festival. Review to follow.
  • Also axed: the first two nights of the Metropolitan Opera's Live in HD Festival which would have featured showings of last year's Don Pasquale and a 2010 Simon Boccanegra with Plácido Domingo. The Festival will (hopefully) open on Monday with the scheduled showing of Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride starring Susan Graham.

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.
