Half-asleep in her South Beach Corbusier chaise longue, Opera Chic hears happy news from her hardcore Scala-going, Conservatorio-going Milanese friends.
On Friday night, despite the not-so-good buzz coming from her very first rehearsal, la signora Fiorenza Cedolins has gotten a b0ttload of applause for her Cio Cio San. Huge ovations for Maestro Chung, too, our favorite mullet-wearing Zen maestro.
NYC's own Maestro Murray Perahia has, as we expected, rawked tha house at Conservatorio Verdi in Milan. He appeared in fine, fine form with a perfectly healthy hand! Yay! Expect pictures, and a little audio snippet, later -- thanks to one of Opera Chic's spies: now we have some serious brunch and shopping commitments! First things (ie, Miami Beach) first.
