The MetBlog

I just came upon the blog at the Met's fancy new website! Simply called MetBlog, it is currently a joint effort by various people involved in the new Tan Dun opera, The First Emperor. I had to do a little digging to find out who some of the posters are, but it seems there is a wide range of departments represented. Suzanne Mentzer (didn't have to search for her!), a mezzo performing in the opera (can't find her role); Steven Osgood, an assistant conductor; and stage directors Peter McClintock and Eric Einhorn. I'd love to hear from some orchestra members, too.

Maybe they'll be interested in the writings of a lowly Young Lover/First Novice?

I can't help but think, to my endless disappointment, that Mentzer pulled out of the production. I don't see her listed in the cast lists on schedule. I do see Michelle DeYoung, and thought maybe she's replaced Menzter, which is weird, since they're not much the same kind of singer.

No, she's there: The First Emperor. She's listed down on the dates, along with DeYoung. It sounds like her part might be smallish. But she's there! Can't wait.
