Let's face it, a chocolate-covered Simon Keenlyside is unlikely to materialise any time soon.
So here's the next best thing: Simon Keenlyside-covered chocolate.
Available at the Met's shop (though sadly not online).
I posted this after the reader who sent the photo told me they'd bought this chocolate at the Met shop.
Metropolitan Opera Customer Relations, however claim the chocolate "does not exist and appears to be a hoax that has been posted over the internet." "Unfortunately," they added "we have been unable to trace the origin of this falsehood."
Not quite. The chocolate does exist - but apparently only as gifts for production members. So, sadly, unless you can find your way to Iestyn Davies's fridge, a nibble is out of the question.
