I have only had time to go out to the New York Times Review and read the article there.
It was there I found the names of the two most famous arias, so I found some utube links to those: Adieu, notre petite table and "En fermant les yeux." There was a little too much French there for me, so I clicked on some more links and found the lyrics in English. Then I had to go to utube and watch other famous sopranos sing "Adieu, notre petite table": Natalie Dessay, Renee Flemming, Maria Callas, Beverly Sills ... and by now I was getting to know the tune quite well.
Should be fun on Saturday.
In my community it is only playing at 10:00 am at the Scotia Cinneplex in Chinook Centre.
