    I just contributed to the Metropolitan Opera: $50. It's not that much, but it is the first time I've actually gifted money to the Met or any opera company.

    They will need the help. I'm worried about them.

    Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest in action with Senior Service: Online Beethoven-concert.
    Not Opera but still a good gesture.

    That's actually very impressive how well they've managed to record it!

    Yeah, they're going to have a hard time signing singers and other people to put on their operas, given their approach to dealing with this crisis. And then sending out pleas for fundraising to those people that learned they were laid off/not going to be paid via a Tweet.

    We don't need opera houses...

    We don't need opera companies...

    We don't need professional opera singers...

    We just need one thing - supermarkets and clerks who can carry a tune... wait... that's two things...

    Make that -

    More in hope than expectation, I've just bought a ticket for a Joseph Calleja recital in Munich towards the end of July.

    All these opera singers are spreading germs, with their mouths wide open, all that hot air coming out.
