IL TROVATORE (Dramma lirico in four acts- World Premiere in 1853 in Rome)
In Verdi’s magnificent opera, many subjects are covered in parallel.
The biggest weaknesses of the human being are presented to the audience with all their nakedness with magnificent arias.
JEALOUSY, HATE, REVENGE
These emotions constantly appear to everyone. It is necessary to understand that no action made with these emotions can lead to positive results. On the contrary, it gradually draws people down and you need to understand that it is only these bad emotions that cause all evil. If you don't understand it on your own, fate teaches it so painfully. This is the brief summary of the opera. There may be some of us who might say, whether such an exaggeration can happen in our real life. Be sure it happens, until we realize it. Keyword to realize it is “mindfulness”. I wish everyone that they stay away from these negative feelings before you get the lesson from destiny.

Congrats to @operagaga on her appearance as Star - the opera singing stripper - on @hustlersmovie ✨👏🏼👠 Just got out of the theater and not only loved the movie (@jlo is incredible!!) but I was so happy to see & hear Marcy on screen! Brava!! ♥️ Thank you @monalyssasmiles for being the best date! 🥰 #360ofOpera #WomenInOpera
At all the screenings of Hustlers, the producers talked about how for the past several years, this project was shut down and rejected time and again because male movie executives didn’t think the public would “want to see a movie about women taking advantage of men.” Put that 33 million dollar opening in your pipe and smoke it, bitch!
Giant fucking congrats to STX, Lorene Scafaria, and to the entire cast and crew. So overwhelmed with pride to have been included in this bad assery. Hot damn, y’all. #hustlersmovie
Un reencuentro muy especial lleno de mucho cariño y emoción Valentina Ortiz con la maravillosa Cantante Soprano Nathalie Avila en The Opera Doral un concierto hermoso lleno de mucha música y cantantes espectaculares dirigido por Manny Pérez.

RIP wonderful Russian mezzo Irina Bogacheva!
I met Irina Bogacheva in a dressing room at the Bastille in early 2005 when she shared a dressing room with my artist and was performing in the Boris Godunov. She was beautiful and intelligent woman. I did not know at the time how very famous she was in Russia. She was curious to know the people that I managed and why I traveled to see them perform.
Later I got a call from her in NYC, she invite me to her International voice competition (St. - Petersburg), and I was the only non-Russian judge on the judging panel of 5. We became very friendly, she had me sit next to her at the judging table at the competition and she asked me to do a Masterclass in St. Petersburg conservatory that I did in November 2005. She set up TV interviews and she treated me with great respect. It was truly exciting experience! I am very thankful that I had a chance to know this beautiful singer! RIP!
