    Yay! Thanks for the link, I didn’t know it was STAGED this time.
    Also: contralto in chainmail – does Agathe know about this? 😉

    I’m really going to have fun bitching about the costumes in this. Atrocious is not even in the same ballpark. It’s like a Literal met PC Police and they fell madly in love.

  4. I saw this performance! The abundance of female voices was absolutely stunning. First time I heard Mingardo, she’s great! here is my review:

    Who is the soprano you guys are talking about? 🙂

    thanks, yeah we were already reading your review this morning while in transit. we are now taking a walk into the city to explore a bit and are quite excited about tomorrow. too bad we didnt coincide, it would have been great fun!
    which soprano are you referring to in your question? greetings from Turin!

    • Like what Anik said here:
      PS: sadly, no reason to trek to Antwerp next season, at least not for our certain soprano. (ah well, it if has to be Naples… at least I could go tie shopping!)

      I was wondering who the “certain soprano” was, but it’s not important of course. Have loads of fun in Turin!! And make sure you post your impressions!

        And all the rest of us get lucky because we’re getting two reviews – nearly snorted my coffee over my keyboard at your description of the sister relationship, Giulia.

        (“certain soprano”: Myrtò Papatanasiu. thadieu and I may, in the last year, have talked a wee bit much about her performances and scenic approaches, just ask poor dehggi)
