Our “Mad Men” Moment

by Suzanne Calvin

Move over, Don Draper!

The Dallas Opera marketing team is enjoying our 15 minutes or so of notoriety accorded to a lucky few.¬† Citing “one of the best and most original ad campaigns of the year,” The Dallas Opera has evidently earned the unofficial¬† “Barihunk” Seal of Approval with our so-bad-they’re-good season mascots.¬† The most amazing thing about this year’s plethora of chiseled young men is the fact that they are the actual singing stars who will be performing these demanding roles on The Dallas Opera stage.

How exciting is that ?

I’d love to pretend I knew what you were talking about, but I don’t. Neither does anybody else around here.
If you are referring to Shane Gasbarra — He once worked for Houston Grand Opera.

Therefore, while we MIGHT very well be idiots (independently of your comments), we don’t deserve that moniker–based on the peripatetic career of someone who never set foot in The Dallas Opera.

So there.

You people are idiots. You overlooked the most talented opera director a company could hope for in Shane Gaspara, for one who cared so much for your company that he LEFT! You deserve what you got.
