Kasarova Romeo Livestream from Munich
After the boys got their Brokeback Onegin, the White Shirts are getting a free video livestream performance of “I Capuleti e i Montecchi” with Kasarova as Romeo from Bayerische Staatsoper. The date is May 19th, 7 p.m. (GMT+1). I will be hosting another live blog session for the event, so starch your finest white shirt and bring your tissues and the smelling salts along!
I first saw the news via Intermezzo this morning, Eyes and Smorg have also sent alerts. Do not miss! I don’t know for how much longer Kasarova will sing this kind of belcanto repertory, since she is mocing more towards the dramatic ultimately, so let’s catch this while we can – the door may be cloed on a full staged Sesto already, but this Lacroix Romeo is still in our lucky stars.
Thank you in advance, Munich!
Yves Abel will be conducting, the full cast includes Anna Netrebko as Giulietta, Dimitri Pittas as Tebaldo, Ante Jerkunica as Capellio and, as Lorenzo, Paul Gay. Word!
