IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR BREAKING ALAGNA NEWS, THE LATEST UPDATE CAN BE FOUND HERE.
Thursday, December 14, 2006 was another moment of reckoning for the La Scala management during the ensuing hilarity that Roberto Alagna had created, as the replacement tenor Walter Fraccaro was rotated into the production.
Well, one of the noticeable differences during last night’s Alagna-less production was a modification in footwear. Replacement tenor for Radames, Signore Fraccaro, appeared throughout the Zeffirelli scenes sans platform sandals that had been favored by Alagna.
I guess he was all like, "Ok, I won at Aida, so I’m calling the shots here: The “FRAC-STER” doesn’t do platforms.
Alright, Opera Chic is off early tomorrow morning for a little excursion to tour Verdi/Bergonzi-countryside, and then over to Teatro Regio di Parma to hear Maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen conduct Haydn, Schönberg, and Mussorgsky.
(A final message to Alagna: stop ur str8 ballin & lay low for 24 hours kthxbi!)
btw, a huge, gigantic, latke-filled
to all of the celebrating Jewish readers on teh internets.
