Sigh...that Joshua Bloom is the spitting image of my Argentine ex.

How are you anyway Sarah?? It's been donkeys, hope things are going great.


Argentine ex? How exotic. But can HE sing Rossini coloratura?
It's great to hear from you, it has been a while. Hope all's well. And also - happy birthday for last week, twin!


Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo NOT TEDDY!

Die Kaiserin

My husband and I attended this past Saturday's performance of Don Giovanni at the Met, and we were delighted and awed by the talent and good looks of the entire ensemble. This was our first glance at Isabel Leonard, and it was great to see such a beautiful young woman sing the role so exquisitely. I suppose I'm frightfully behind in "opera gossip," since I only learned after some Sunday Googling that Saturday's Don--Erwin Schrott--is the father of Anna Netrebko's baby. Are the parents married, or have plans to? And along those lines, it's wonderful to hear that lovely Isabel is betrothed to the breathtakingly handsome Teddy. I was fortunate enough to ogle him from the front row in both Peter Grimes at the Met and then Billy Budd in Santa Fe this summer. What a glamorous and musically blessed opera couple they will be!

PS: In answer to your queries about Joshua Bloom's performance, he was superb as well, and a terrific actor. All in all, I repeat myself here, a delightful ensemble cast.


Thanks for the good wishes; Happy Birthday to you too!
