An encore for me, at least. I had it in my mind that last week's Metropolitan Opera broadcast of Faust was the last of the season. But what do I hear on my ancient Grundig this morning? La Clemenza di Tito. Va bene! One more broadcast to finish out the season. And Mozart, too. (Sorry, Hilary.)

And according to the talk on the intermission feature it looks as though the broadcast will continue next season and probably for the foreseeable future. (No thanks to the merged ChevronTexaco conglomerate and its new emphasis on politically correct meddling which has no time - or money - for the greatest vocal music on earth.) Wonderful news on which to end the season.
