>This is very sad ... I don't understand how ,snipped>

Indeed, the world is coming to am end, the sky is falling down. For some 
reason itís a very wide-held sentiment that Guleghinaís Adriana will be a waste 
of time; in fact ALL my opera loving friends share that sentiment, and quite 
emphatically so. Iím not a big fan of hers, but have people forgotten so 
quickly her Giorgetta in Il Tabarro last spring? I donít think anyone complained 
about it and I personally loved it, so Iíd give her at least the benefit of the 
doubt in verismo. 

Domingo: how many times have we been warned that this or that will be a 
mistake for him, yet he always proves the doomsayers wrong. Conclusion: he 
has better judgment than anyone else regarding what he can or cannot do. I 
also think that Adriana is a score that is difficult to wreck Ė I never heard an 
Adriana I did not like.

Gelb: I too donít like the fact that he makes it so difficult for old hags like me 
to get the tickets they want, but by the time he flies out he will leave his 
footprint on the opera world in a way that no other GM before him did Ė some 
of the young people that were attracted to the celebrity buzz he created will 
discover what opera has to offer and will stick around for the real stuff. Itís 
not much different from how I was attracted to opera in the first place many 
years ago.
