And if your week is as rainy as mine and needs even more white shirt action to brighten, stop by at towanda’s place, who is reporting on Joyce DiDonato’s latest Facebook-shared images regarding her current Octavian (and the Marschallin in case) at La Scala.
And for a personal report from the Scala performances, check out Schrati’s blog for report and photos.
