Support urged for opera broadcasts

My thanks to the April 8 letter writer for bringing attention to the live HD broadcasts of performances from the Metropolitan Opera. Theaters on Oahu and Big Island are listed on the Met’s website, but not Maui.

Not only will there be a performance of Mozart’s “Cosi Fan Tutte” later this month, but the website indicates that Rossini’s “La Cenerentola” (Cinderella) will be broadcast May 10, with the amazing American mezzo-soprano Joyce Didonato in the lead. That opera is an explosion of bel canto singing at its greatest.

I hope Maui will support this expensive endeavor and turn out for the broadcasts so they will continue into the future.
