I’ve been reading breathless reports on the birth of opera’s new baby.
Apparently, Juan Diego Florez sat up all night with his wife, Julia, in their rented Manhattan apartment. The baby was born just after noon, giving the proud father a minute or so to hold him before he had to dash for a 1pm Comte Ory at the Met with Diana Damrau and Joyce DiDonato.
Here’s a link, but the media were hours late. Joyce tweeted the news hot from her tenor’s lips.
