A Night at the Met

25/01/2012 § Leave a comment

I caught a lovely production of Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca at the New York Metropolitan Opera tonight, and just wanted to share a few pictures I snapped.  The opera house is one of my favorite places in New York, with its massive Chagall murals, starry dreamlike chandeliers and copious amounts of red velvet — the opera ends up being a bonus!  I’m also hoping to catch Massenet’s Manon, starring Anna Netrebko — I saw her perform the title role a few years ago at the Los Angeles Opera and loved her.

Angela Gheorghiu as Tosca. 
Vissi d’arte (I have lived for art).

Luciano Pavarotti as Cavaradossi.
E lucevan le stelle (When the stars were brightly shining)
