Marschallin Monday

I went to see "Elektra" via the Met HD Broadcast on Saturday, which was SPECTACULARLY amazing.  Nina Stemme, Waltraud Meier, and Adrianne Pieczonka held me on the edge of my seat, wrenched in their anguish.  "OH MY GOODNESS," I exclaimed after the last note went silent.  I wasn't in alone, either.  That has to be one of the most astounding things I've ever experienced.

Um and also this, which popped up in the 2016-17 Season preview video that showed before the opera.  I also nearly came out of my seat, and texted my cielo immediately, HOLY MOTHER OF GOD.

Where is her other hand?

Fleming. Garanca. All the red.

I'm not sure my heart can take it.  Thankfully (or not?) I have a year to get ready.  Oh my.
