[all clips with thanks to JaRoWi1647]
Look, it’s Romina Basso looking fierce and Philippe Jaroussky wearing tons of blue ’80s eyeliner – what could go wrong on a Vivaldi night like this?
Jaroussky-heavy (does anyone mind?), but with quite a few mezzo, contralto and soprano glimpses, JaRoWi1647 has posted three clips from the MEZZO broadcast of last Friday’s Vivaldi “Orlando” in Paris. – Thanks, JaRoWi!
Long tresses and glum-colored dresses seem to prevail in an Audi production that doesn’t exactly scream inspiration, but with that cast, I can live with it (does anyone else feel strongly reminded of the Losey-Giovanni wigs?). I just wish I didn’t have to squint into quite as much darkness to make out Romina Basso strutting by with a sword at her side.
Also, behold Lemieux:
And contralto, strike three: more Kristina Hammarström
Fingers crossed for more clips surfacing!
