Three Divas – Metropolitan Opera
Click here for tickets :  $20.00

Available on demand through June 4

Throughout the pandemic the Met has kept itself in the audiences’ minds and hearts through several routes. The Nightly Opera Streams, where you can watch one opera free each day has been a great gift for opera lovers who can’t pay the ticket prices at Lincoln Center or who live too far away to see them live or who have missed the legendary performances. The Met has opened its archive and made its treasures available to those of us who could merely dream of seeing Pavarotti’s Rigoletto or Shirley Verrett’s Tosca in performance.
The Met has also been staging special events for which it has been charging the paltry fee of $20 to see some of their biggest current stars singing arias, songs, duets, and other lollypops for our pleasure.
Last Saturday, for instance, sopranos Ailyn Pérez and Nadine Sierra and mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, accompanied by pianist Vlad Iftinca and guitarist Pablo Sáinz-Villegas, sang their hearts
out, separately and collectively, live via satellite from the cavernous Royal Opera in the Palace of Versailles. The link will give you the full repertoire.

To buy tickets just click on Add to Cart. The concert also included a selection of Spanish and Portuguese songs

    How lightly the word diva is being thrown around.

    A diva isn’t identified by the appellation diva, she’s identified by her own name, and a Diva is identified by only her first name.
