Congratulations to the New York Giants, winners of Super Bowl XLVI.

We're celebrating with an excerpt from Act II of Puccini's Tosca. Filmed at the Met in 1978, with Luciano Pavarotti as Cavaradossi and Shirley Verrett as Floria Tosca. Thanks to a sharp-eyed reader who spotted when the clip was from.

Hit it, Luciano!

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.
