Così fan tutte reviews

October 31, 2010

The Wall Street Journal reports that at a private party in New Jersey for a charity last night a woman fainted when Nathan Gunn began singing.

"The paramedics came to take away the guest, who seemed conscious and fine; reportedly, she was on a new medication and had not eaten enough that day.

""I don't know if anyone has ever fainted while I've sung before,' Mr. Gunn explained after his performance. 'Usually they're seated.'"



"Mr. Gunn, who recently earned outstanding reviews in the Dallas Opera's 2010 revival of Donizetti's Don Pasquale, will be accompanied by the composer himself at this world premiere performance, and by his wife, pianist/arranger Julie Jordan Gunn, throughout the remainder of the program."

September 7, 2010

Rosie O'Donnell's Broadway Kids has announced the lots for its 2010 Charity Auction.
One of the items is:
2 VIP tickets to The Metropolitian Opera's production of The Magic Flute and a backstage meet & greet with Nathan Gunn on December 24th, 2010, at 6:30 p.m. Orchestra seats, row V, seats 111, 112. Donated by: Nathan Gunn
Lot closes: Wed, 29 Sep 2010 1:50:00 PM EDT

UPDATE (Sept. 15): The item appears to have been changed to "2 VIP tickets to The Metropolitian Opera's production of The Magic Flute and a backstage meet & greet with Nathan Gunn on December 21st, 2010 at 11:00am." Perhaps the change came because nobody had placed a bid for the Christmas Eve tickets.

FURTHER UPDATE! (later on Sept. 15): The date is back to December 24! I wonder what was going on?!?

EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: (a few minutes later on Sept. 15): I am told that a relative of the singer says the date is indeed December 21st. So, proceed with caution, if at all, if you are interested.

July 14 & 16, 2011
