Three time zones, two tickets

That’s how many time zones I am from the New York Met, and how many tickets I’ve bought to different performances there. At this rate, that’s more than I’ve seen by the LA Opera (where I saw “Tamerlano”).

This weekend, I’ll be watching “Rodelinda,” and on January 21, I’ll be enjoying “The Enchanted Island.” Both performances that I otherwise wouldn’t have a prayer in hell of seeing, thanks to the Met’s HD broadcasts.
