Yes, David, you can be proud of and celebrate your new leader and his active 
suppression of anything factual and cultural. Congratulations! Meanwhile, in the 
decadent confines of France, there will be the first staged performance in Europe 
jn 150 years of Halévy’s "La Reine de Chypre" at the TCE on the 7th and Saint-
Saëns’ "Le Timbre d’ Argent" staged at the Comique (9-19 June). Concert 
performances of Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne’s "Phèdre" (1786) will be at the Bouffes du 
Nord from the 8th to 11th. (Love this theater's "distressed" look. It was seen in the 
movie Aria.) Over at the Paris Opera it is the usual stuff, Onegin, Rigoletto, 
Cenerentola, Carmen. (The story here is about Netrebko bailing on her last Onegin 
on the 31st so she could appear at the opening of the tiny concert hall on Gergiev's 
property outside Moscow and her astounding replacement, Elena Stikhina, who 
many thought outshone Nebs. You heard it here first.)  
I see you have a rich opera program at the Met this month which will give you 
some consolation. 
Best regards, Frank
