Bring the dazzle, bring the bling. For November's Opera Now magazine, OC wrote a piece on opera's longstanding tradition with haute joaillerie and watchmaking dynasties: Swarovski and Maria Callas; Van Cleef & Arpels and Danielle de Niese; Chopard and Anna Netrebko/Erwin Schrott/José Carreras; and Ann Ziff for Tamsen Z and Renée Fleming, among many others. You can download the piece in three parts: Opera Now Jewels 01 Opera Now Jewels 02 Opera Now Jewels 03
In December's issue for Opera Now magazine, we rounded-up our favorite opera and symphony themed gifts, such as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust timepieces awarded to winners of this year's Operalia 2013 Audience Award, downloadable here.
We also commented on the recent La Scala/Barenboim music director shakeup, available here.
