In the news

Alagna storms off the stage of La Scala!

Not only stormed off stage, but stormed off stage in the middle of a duet, leaving his poor partner, Violeta Urmana, stuck on stage without him. His understudy rushed on, a few minutes later, wearing jeans, and with no time to warm up carried on with the show. Of such things are careers made.

Ah, opera.


  1. What a shame! I didn't know that people still booed on occasion. Perhaps I'm too polite. I just wouldn't applaud.

  2. To Christianne:

    Ah, but these are Italians. Perhaps their responses to opera are never lukewarm!
