The Met issues belated Montserrat Caballé regretsmain
The magnificent soprano died early on Saturday morning.
Most opera houses where she sang announced her passing from the stage that night. Some held a minute’s silence.
The Met did nothing on Saturday.
Nothing on Sunday.
Nothing on Monday morning.
On Monday afternoon it published the following notice on social media:
The Metropolitan Opera mourns the death of Montserrat Caballé, one of the great sopranos of the 20th century. At the Met, Caballé dazzled audiences with her extraordinary vocalism in 15 roles and 98 performances. She made her Met debut in 1965 as Marguerite in Faust in the final season of the old opera house. Caballé’s final Met performance was in 1985 (as Tosca), but her extraordinary talent will never be forgotten by those fortunate enough to have heard her live or through recordings. We offer our sincerest condolences to her family, friends, and many admirers.
Are there still humans in charge of the Met?
