Here's a nice New York Times article about his appointment to the Met - the first time in 40 years that the Metropolitan Opera has a new musical director! - http://www.nytimes.c...ector.html?_r=0
Watching En direct de l'univers with Yannick Nezet Seguin - what a great show!
He spoke briefly about how much he loves Celine (and has since Une Colombe), and how much of a thrill it was to meet her at that show in Montreal in 2016. Interestingly, heading up the string section on the show was none other than.... Celine's concertmaster Philippe Dunnigan!
And Celine was there via video (live from Vegas, I assume!) singing a bit of Quand on n'a que l'amour, in a duet with Yannick's boyfriend!
They also had Rufus Wainwright and he happened to sing my favourite Rufus song (April Fool's). All my favourite people!
So thrilled to have Yannick in NYC. Hope he does something with Celine one day. He has said several times he'd love to... hope it happens! How cool would it be to have Celine sing at the Met?!
