In honour of tonight’s opening night at the Metropolitan (which, if you’ve been hibernating for the last few weeks, is a new production of Donizetti’s L’Elisir D’Amore by Bartlett Sher starring La Netrebko and Matthew Polenzani) , starting at 7, I decided to spend part of this evening browsing the Met Opera Shop.
And guess what I found:
That’s right, they even included a reference to that renowned opera, Cavalleria Rusticana, by Verdi. Oh, dear. Shame on the Met.
