I missed the Met Opera At-Home Gala when it was first broadcast, but I heard from friends that it was surprisingly great. So my partner and I are tuning in to the re-broadcast. I think it's up on the Met's website until tomorrow evening. It's a lot of fun seeing everyone at home, like Peter Mattei's summer home with a Swedish lake in the background, the adorable children of Diana Damrau and Nicolas Teste, and Gunther Groissbeck's statue of Wagner wearing a covid mask. (I was baffled by the art in Jonas Kaufmann's space, though, like the abstract painting - a chess pawn? - and the odd face on the floor.) Yannick Nezet-Seguin is a great presence, and I hope the Met can capitalize on that. I'm ready to get back to the opera!!

ETA: Wait, on further thought I'm not at all sure it was Kaufmann with the strange art. Maybe Rene Pape?
