Pav tribute FINALLY

I neglected to mention yesterday that their will be a tribute to Pavarotti in the form of a free concert of Verdi's Requiem. On September 18th (pre-season!) James Levine will conduct the Met Orchestra along with Barbara Frittoli, Olga Borodina, Marcello Giordani, and James Morris to remember the anniversary of Pavarotti's death. A few weeks late, but whose counting? It's free!

Also, the Met announced which HD transmissions it's putting onto DVD. From the 2006-2007 season the only other one is The First Emperor. From this season we can look forward to Hansel and Gretel, Peter Grimes, Manon Lescaut, Macbeth, and La Boheme all on DVD! Because we really need another Boheme for our collections.

Happy Listening!!! =)

PS. I really need to know if any one listening to Saturday's matinee broadcast heard the obnoxious[ly loud] "brava"s during curtain calls. Please some one tell me!
