The Show Must Go On - March 22, 2006 - The New York Sun - NY News: "A couple of footnotes, if I may: The Met's performance on Monday night was dedicated to the late James King, a prominent Florestan. And, before the performance began, the Met's 'seatback titles' informed us that the production had been paid for by Alberto Vilar. One of the great arts philanthropists of our time, Mr. Vilar fell from grace - losing his money and his reputation. I hope, and actually expect, that, like the characters in 'Fidelio,' he will find his way back into the light."
