  1. in Lucia Edgardo will NOT be Juan Diego Florez. He hated the production and said no thanks

  2. I’d do all the 2017/18 new productions if I could for assorted reasons. I’d even do the Boheme to see Fabiano as Rodolfo again. I would also have to do the Grimes. Of the 2018/19 stuff only the Janacek and the Unsuk Chin really appeal.
