Simon Boccangera Online Tonight

Hpbucketsimonboccanegrareal At the risk of contradicting myself (see yesterday's post), you can listen to the live Met season premiere of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra online tonight at 7:30. This is one of General Director Peter Gelb's new initiatives (along with screening select Saturday matinee's live in HD movie theaters), and from prior experience, the sound quality is excellent (even better than the radio broadcasts.)
