Lunching with Jimmy Levinemain
The Metropolitan Opera Guild has been celebrating the return of its maestro.
Here’s some inside stuff from our pair of scouts at the lunch:
Lovely event, seeing lots of friends old and new, except the first course was dreadful. But that’s par for the course at the Waldorf.
Dolores Zajick pulled out of the musical tribute due to gallbladder surgery, so Christine Goerke stepped in at the last minute and was awesome.
Sherrill Milnes and Renata Scotto had a great Abbot and Costello routine. Sherrill loved being back on stage, he was the last man standing at the end of the program!
Roberto Alagna was sweet and his wife is Very pregnant. Also I got to meet Jesse Norman, who was surrounded by adoring fans.
The food improved slightly but no chance we’re having our wedding there. Service is terrible!!
