Last week, the White Shirt Hausgeist of Christof Loy dropped by with the news that the Salzburg Theodora will finally be released on DVD.
After the event was initially slated for summer 2010, Presto Classical now names a fixed date with April 26th. The DVD isn’t listen on Arkivmusic or Amazon yet, even the Salzburger Festspiele themselves don’t have it in its “recent productions on DVD” listing yet.
Fingers crossed that the release will indeed happen as proposed because there can never be enough of Christine Schäfer, more so in a white shirt, or of Bejun Mehta (litte red dress included).
