Elizabeth DeShong

First off, anyone who loves baroque music, charming stagecraft, a rollicking good time, or just something a little out of the ordinary in classical music, go see the encore performance of the HD broadcast of the Met's Enchanted Island, http://www.metoperafamily.org/opera/the-enchanted-island-tickets.aspx (supposing you are not so fortunate as to see it in person.)

But secondly, though there was tons of both interesting a great singing, because no one else seems to be mentioning her, OMG Elizabeth DeShong!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.elizabethdeshong.com/

I have never HEARD such articulation. her coloratura was simply amazing!

Saw the encore performance last night - and I loved every second of it. The fantastic staging, the brilliant voices (especially the countertenors), and of course the mermaids.

It's clear that our great minds think alike!

Like the news, only important...
