GAH! THIRTY-FOUR OPERAS! And I thought 17 was a lot last year. Obviously, our summer o' opera made a big difference. It was a great year for seeing things—was it for you?
My favorites of 2013 were, in chronological order:
March 10, 2012: Venus in Fur on Broadway with the incomparable Nina Arianda
March 13, 2012: Pina 3D at Lincoln Center Film
June 29, 2012: Don Carlo at the Wiener Staatsoper with the best cast ever
July 7, 2013: the premiere of Written on Skin in Aix-en-Provence
July 10–13, 2012: my first Ring cycle in Munich
August 8, 2012: One Man, Two Guv'nors on Broadway, where I almost fell out of my seat laughing
November 18, 2012: Joyce DiDonato's Drama Queens recital at Carnegie Hall
What did you see that moved you last year? Any performances you're particularly looking forward to in 2013?
