Gong show

La Cieca hears that tenor Dongwon Shin saved the day at Opera Australia last night (or would that be tomorrow night?) when he jumped in on barely a day’s notice as Calaf in Turandot. And most of that “day” was spent on a plane from Chicago to Sydney! First reports are that the Sydney audience gave Shin a huge ovation “like nothing we’ve seen here in years.”

Here’s a clip of Shin in Turandot opposite Jennifer Wilson, his prima donna at Opera Australia.
