There's a whole two page (!) layout in the May Vanity Fair celebrating the high definition broadcasts that the Metropolitan Opera is producing. Brava! But, really only under 40 years old and physically hot singers? And once again, my favorite voices aren't celebrated. Particularly irritating to me among the spotlighted are Erwin Shrott for Don Giovanni and Danielle de Niese for Orfeo ed Euridice. What about the brilliant mezzo soprano Susan Graham who stole Don Giovanni from the theatrically weak Shrott? What about the glorious Stephanie Blythe who rocked it as Orfeo and gave one of the best performances of the entire season. Why are the mezzos always getting the shaft? I've been noticing this since the Volpe Gala broadcast.
