Apologies for the subtle GYPSY reference.
And for digressing momentarily from the An American Tragedy craze.
Thoroughly enjoyed Manon Lescaut Mattila style last evening at the Chicago Lyric. I am mooching off some wireless but will give a thorough assessment later this evening.
Many thanks to Andreas Melinat of the Chicago Lyric Opera for stopping by and making us feel so welcome!
I will say that I have officially decided that Manon Lescaut is not one of my favorites. But bravo to the Chicago Lyric and their fine production, starring the mesmerizing Karita Mattila. More later....
