Tonight: Manon Lescaut at the Metropolitan Opera

Manon Lescaut

Conductor: James Levine
Manon Lescaut: Karita Mattila
des Grieux: Marcello Giordani
Lescaut: Dwayne Croft
Geronte: Dale Travis

During the second act, Karita did the SPLITS while singing the money note! My Auntie Sieglinde's sensibilities have been quite shaken by Karita's vocal feats, but I must remind her that sometimes girls just wanna have fun.

I'm planning on seeing this on Feb 16 at the Metropolitan--oh yeah, that would be the Metropolitan theater in South Austin.
