Peter Gelb, General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera, checks in from the Opera's Japan tour, the first visit by a major performing arts organization since the March 11 earthquake.
Oops, sorry for the double post. I agree with Ciesse, the HD broadcasts are purely wonderful!
I am so excited that the met is here in Tokyo but with $200 to $600+ price tag per performance, it is not exactly "affordable..." I suppose I will just grab a show in NY.
Kudos to the Met's HD broadcasts, btw. Great way to make the Met's wonderful & pricey productions more accessible country-wide.
Re: more enthusiastic response in Japan - maybe also to do with a culture in which it's less acceptable to be exuberantly, emotionally self-expressive in public.

Do you have any thoughts at all you would like to share concerning the departure of New York City Opera from Lincoln Center?
