    Some wise words from Susanne Mentzer on life is short, opera is long.

    Sam Ramey was 47 on the Mefistofele DVD so Lukas is still a baby & has plenty of time to 'get there'.

    I think he has already. It's FraudulentReptiles.com.

    Did anyone watched Bayreuth Lohengrin today? What do you think about it? I can't understand the rats?! It's that just me?

    I can't understand them too, but I'm not surprised since I never took any lessons of Ratish language. Did you? Did they want something from you or you just heard them talking between themselves?

    I just posted about it on the "Streaming" thread--expressing my reluctance to pay the $21. I've been spoiled by the free streams of McVicar's Meistersinger, Herheim's Onegin, and Bieito's Fidelio!

    I also can't work out whether you have to watch it all in one sitting, which is not going to fit in with my lifestyle, or if you can stop or start. So, no, I'm not planning to.

    Met tickets went on sale today for non-subscribers. Anyone do any shopping? Got my ticket to L'elisir d'Amore for 21 March, really excited to hear Ms. Damrau in person, as she is solely responsible for spurring my interest in opera.

    I got tickets for a weekend extravaganza: La Boheme, Rodelinda, and FAUST. My wallet is hurting now, plus I don't have anyplace to stay yet--still working on some friends.

    My plan B is to try to find a reasonably priced chain hotel in one of the commuter towns in NJ or CT...

    I also bought a ticket for the Jonas Kaufmann recital, which I have NOT received. I am very worried about this. I called them after I got the opera tickets and was told they "haven't been sent out yet" but that was weeks ago. I may try to phone today--but I doubt I'll be able to get through! *insert worried smilie here*

    Depending on how "bohemian" you are, you can do couchsurfing ( www.couchsurfing.com ) or a hostel. I've done both and have had nothing but great experiences every time.
