Opera News turns 75 this season! In the October issue, the magazine celebrates its diamond anniversary with a look back at some key moments since its founding in 1936. Highlights of the October issue also include profiles of conductor William Christie, cabaret singer Marilyn Maye, baritone Zeljko Lucic, and soprano Jennifer Zetlan, as well as features on Bernstein's final stage work, A Quiet Place, how the internet affects the way we experience opera, and the changing enthusiasm of today's audiences. October also sees a presentation in the Metropolitan Opera Guild's new "Met Mastersingers" series at New York City's Town Hall on October 27. This year's honoree -- only the second in the series, with Renée Fleming featured last season -- is star bass René Pape, who will be appearing in the title role of the Met's new production of Boris Godunov.
