  1. oh yes! I saw this yesterday and I also put it in my calendar. I’ll let you know when I get the ticket ☺

      oh, which one you’re getting ticket for? in Torino? I’m planning to get tickets too! and might be 3!! (since it takes such a long trip across Atlantic it does not make sense for me to just attend 1… i had planned to go to A.Hallenberg’s Agrippina in Antwerpen mid March… but now not sure how that will work out if I also want to see this…)

      • Yes, I was taking about Torino. Sorry, I saw your post on the phone and I actually didn’t realize you also posted about something else. Thank you for the tip of Hallenberg in Antwerp! I might go there too.

    Yeah, a Tuesday night JT, urgh.

      ja, i’ll have to come in the night b4 and take red-eye out perhaps… tix avail 29.august! (also L’incoronazinone di Poppea with S.Mingardo on feb.27 i think… why couldn’t they just shove the whole thing into 1 week!!)

    top one = strictly mezzo and contralto zone! Love it 😀

    though I’m not the biggest fan of Nesi as Holofernes.

    the sheer amount of women cast is enough to make me cry in the best possible sense.
    (looking forward to your reviews!)

      i know, i thought that screen cap needs to be up just for that bragging reason

      • Anik LaChev says:

        in Baroque Italian terminology: “Vision of celestial Jerusalem”
        now everything else will pale in comparison… (and perhaps we need a list of directors who tend to cast more female-oriented, to have a planning guideline for our travels)

          given it is the Venice Baroque orchestra, i would assume they checked with S.Mingardo.. she’s touring about the same time with Alessandrini in the tenor-nerone Poppea (also to Carnegie hall, though 20 days later..) , that might the reason (the only one i can think of!) she’s not on the list. On the other hand, they could have also checked with Teresa Iervolino.. It’s quite nice though too see all these Vivaldi’s works again..
