[Ann Hallenberg coloraturocking the Beaune festival, Beaune 2011]
Just a few notes for your viewing and listening pleasure:
- coloraturafan2 uploaded the ENTIRE “Clemenza di Tito” from Aix-en-Provence in two parts on his YT account. Thank you, thank you, thank you, coloraturafan2! This means a fantastic Sarah Connolly-Byron in boots and a waist coat all you want, whenever you want. Wednesday never felt so much like a vacation (thank you also to Avis and Joanie for alerting comments and emails).
- Ann Hallenberg’s “Farinelli” extravaganza, based loosely on the soundtrack for the movie, which was also conducted by Christophe Rousset in the early 90s, is up and available via ArteLiveWeb in all its splendor. And I mean splendor. Bartoli’s ample “Sacrificium” wardrobe pales in comparison to this.
- And when you’re already surfing instead of working now, do yourself a favor and check out towanda’s latest find – mezzo heaven indeed.
