Link: Wolf Trap’s opera gala

For a lighter note on a hurricane weekend, my review of the Wolf Trap opera gala on Wednesday night..

Some people feel I was inordinately tough on Tracy Dahl, who sang with considerable competence, and a lot better than most sopranos can do it. My reservations were about her style, not her substance.

I would love to hear other observations about the evening in general from people who were there.
