From Wednesday, 7:30pm to 6:30 pm Thursday, EST, the Metropolitan Opera’s free streaming selection will be their exquisite 2016 production of Kaaija Saariaho’s beautiful opera, L’Amour de Loin. This is some seriously magical, gorgeous stuff, the kind of thing that still makes opera worthwhile in the age of an overwhelming supply of video media (you can read my review from opening night here).

“Anyone who can write with insight and authority about Alas No Axis, Sonic Youth, Elvis Costello…Missy Mazzoli and William Britelle, and…Mahler…is okay in my book.”
