    It had registered with me that this was happening but I could not get excited about it because Inga Kalna was the soprano who took over from Frau H at the Barbican last November … ( where does the time go? ) A lovely singer indeed but there was no chemistry there at all. It brought into sharp relief how good THE Alica and Ruggiero are! I would be almost reluctant to see even photos of the new pairing although the sound should be good. And what about The Wig? and will she hip-shake and strangle?

    PS. I’ve just noticed that the “sample video” under your link above is a different performance from the one we are used to. The boy is Shintaro and not the other chap.

        Don’t you have some nifty gadget that can capture those excerpts?

        ja, i mean i want the WHOLE dress rehearsal, just not this tiny video 😉
        in case you want it too, open the video with safari. then at the top bar appleSafariFile…., click on Window, then Activity . Look for the largest file there (Alcina.flv), hold down the option key on keyboard & double clik on video, and voila!
