We are here to encourage the development of gifted young singers and to stimulate the growth of New York City's invaluable chamber opera companies. But we will not neglect the Metropolitan Opera either. Get ready for bouquets and brickbats.

Baroquen Wings

Trixie La Fée
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, dear reader, we will spare you lengthy copy (4000 words?) about the lovely ladies and handsome gentleman who who manage to give operatic arias their full artistic due while shedding their beautiful Angela Huff costumes. If you scroll down to the April archives you can read all the juicy details from April 22nd, including the real names of these entertaining artists. We hope you will be inspired to attend an upcoming performance of the Hot Box Girls at Duane Park on the Bowery.

Last night's program involved some new material which was just as impressive as last month's, with the added inducement of the aerial artistry of Baroquen Wings. Often have we protested opera directors who expect the singers to sing from unusual positions.  In this case, the singers themselves have chosen the unusual positions. It stumps us, trying to figure out how they can produce such marvelous sounds with all the attendant musicality of phrasing while performing as ecdysiasts.

Don't take our word for it!  Go see for yourselves.
