While gearing up for this year’s “Capuleti e Montecchi” live chat spring bash (can we make this an annual thing?), here’s a reminder of last year’s Romeo from Liège (currently subbing in Munich, too), Laura Polverelli.
Polverelli has a homepage via Opera Live, the folks behind last year’s Liège White Shirt binge. I wish they’d video broadcast more operas and from other houses, too! Apparently, they’re into singer websites too – as far as I understood it, they set up a website template that singers can sign up for, à la “your home at Opera Live”. A good idea for the many singers who simply can’t shell out the money for a web designer on their own, and I don’t really understand why there’s only Polverelli present so far.
Many singers are in need of a website and a template home to fill with content is still better than no home on the web at all. Otherwise, I’d never have known that Polverelli starred in Pergolesi’s underestimated ” a mezzo between THREE sopranos” White Shirt opera “Flaminio” last year.
And what do we learn from this? If you wear the right hat with your white shirt, you get the intentions of three sopranos instead of just one.
