SALOME AT THE METROPOLITAN OPERA
On December 5, 2016 at the Metropolitan Opera I was fortunate to get to see a
wonderful performance of Salome (Gd I love the music!!! and the orchestra sounded so
really rich and luscious). The cast was uniformly excellent, top to bottom. Pat Racette as
Salome gave what I would call a performance of “totality” (and elicited a standing
ovation) and Zeljko Lucic as Jochanan sounded splendid (actually the best that I have
ever heard him–bravo!). My artist, Nancy Fabiola Herrera, made her role debut as
Herodias in this performance. I am very proud of Nancita–she was wonderful and her
top was exciting and beautiful!! A joy to experience a performance like this at the MET
as I believe it should be. Bravi tutti!
