The Drama Drop -


In honor of the Metropolitan Opera's 125th Anniversary, today's Drama Drop is devoted solely to them.

* As the Metropolitan Opera will celebrate its 125th anniversary this Sunday, general manager Peter Gelb reflects on how he maintains artistic integrity in the face of a shrinking dollar. NY1's Roma Torre filed this report.

* At the same time that the Met celebrates it's 125 years, world-renowned tenor, conductor and administrator Placido Domingo is celebrating 40 years with the company. NY1's Stephanie Simon filed this report.

* And what about the singers of the future at the Met? Well, the Metropolitan Opera continues to train singers they expect will fill the shoes of current Divas and Divos. NY1's Tara Lynn Wagner filed this report.
