One from the provinces

This week on “Unnatural Acts of Opera,” the kind of performance you just don’t hear any more: a “provincial” production of Manon from the New Orleans Opera, starring Montserrat Caballe. Like I said, this kind of thing just doesn’t happen these days.

And did you hear about the 16 year old who sang Carmen last week? The 16 year old boy, I mean?
