More arts list-making at the end of the year

In the St. Pete Times (unnumbered) end-of-year list by John Fleming, he had to this to say about one night in the Opera Tampa series at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center.

"Another musical moment to cherish from 2005 was Jessye Norman's recital, which demonstrated that if her voice isn't quite what it used to be, nobody brings such intensive, nuanced atmosphere to an art song as the great diva."

And he also praised two Broadway shows he saw in New York, The Light in the Piazza and "John Patrick Shanley's potent drama on the crisis of the Catholic Church, Doubt." (See below for more Broadway news.)
