Why Mozart Is Always Welcome at the Met

BY JAY NORDLINGER [NY Sun, 24 October 2005]
As you may know, 2006 is a Mozart year – the 250th anniversary of his birth. But every year’s a Mozart year, just as it is a Beethoven year, or a Brahms year. In any case, the Metropolitan Opera is having a pretty Mozartean fall: On Friday night, they opened a run of “Cosi fan tutte,” and on November 2 they will open a run of “The Marriage of Figaro.” In January, they’ll start “The Magic Flute” – but we’ll have so much Mozart next year, you may even begin to resent the guy.
