Just got notified via Facebook that I have won two tickets (from local NPR station) to a filmed version of a live telecast of Cav and Pag from Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy on Wednesday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Starring Jose Cura as Canio.
Just emailed all my opera loving friends and said the extra ticket goes to the first responder...I was surprised at how few of the local people on my email list are folks that I KNOW for sure like opera...only a handful were at Nixon yesterday...
I like CAV and parts of PAG (as long as the tenor doesn't blubber too much)...but probably would not have gone if they hadn't given me the tickets.
