Famous quotes containing the words opera, performances and/or metropolitan:

    The real exertion in the case of an opera singer lies not so much in her singing as in her acting of a role, for nearly every modern opera makes great dramatic and physical demands.
    Maria Jeritza (1887–1982)

    At one of the later performances you asked why they called it a “miracle,”
    Since nothing ever happened. That, of course, was the miracle
    But you wanted to know why so much action took on so much life
    And still managed to remain itself, aloof, smiling and courteous.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    In metropolitan cases, the love of the most single-eyed lover, almost invariably, is nothing more than the ultimate settling of innumerable wandering glances upon some one specific object.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
