Apres toi, le deluge

First he lost his Grand Tier, then his Floral Hall, and now, it appears, beleaguered benefactor Alberto W. “Albert” Vilar is about to lose his UN Plaza duplex. The newly-listed apartment boasts 20 rooms, including 6 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, a sun-drenched eat-in kitchen, and sweeping views of the East River, the New York City skyline, and the Trump World Towers. The decor may be described as either “lavish” or “garish” depending whether or not you’re Franco Zeffirelli.

My dear, all you need is a powdered wig and a fan, and, poof, you’re the Principessa di Bouillon! The posh pad is listed for $14,500,000 by Brown Harris Stevens.

    Dreadful. But damn if I couldn’t sing one mean m-f’ing “Acerba volutta” in that place.

    I wonder if anyone has ever really paced the floors of that apartment wondering why the tenor hasn’t arrived yet.

    Mr. Vilar may have shown poor judgement in his business endeavors, or might even be guilty of improper or illegal actions. He hasn’t proven guilty of anything yet, has he?

    The fact is that he already gave the opera world a lot of money, and we should be thankful for it. I sure am.

    He shares with us his passion with opera. Come on, let’s give him a break and wish him well.
