Liveblogging: Handel’s “Trionfo” from Aix on Thursday

Who’s up for joining the dysfunctional family dinner? – Sara Mingardo (Disinganno), Sabine Devieilhe (Bellezza), Franco Fagioli (Piacere) and Michael Spyres (Tempo) are on the menu in Handel’s “Il trionfo del tempo e del disinganno”, as staged by Krzysztof Warlikowski.

Yes, the run is already over, but since quite a few of us have been out of town and offline these past few weeks, we’re holding a liveblogging event for the Aix “Trionfo” with the videostream on demand, this upcoming Thursday, July 26th, at 9 p.m. UTC+2 (GMT+1 with Daylight Savings Time).

You’re invited to watch and comment along (bring a virtual louge chair, popcorn and your best fangirl squeal).

The videostream is available via culturebox (production information here). If you have any issues with geoblocking, leave a comment, and the White Shirt crowd will set you up accordingly.

    1. yes, lining up yours and Lang’s schedules will be pretty much impossible if Agathe and I enter into the mix – for one of us, it’ll always be the middle of the night. (but it’s also kind of great that we have White Shirts in so many timezones!)


      1. and middle working day time for Stray which is also difficult, as she wanted to see Brussels Mitridate last time.. but let me send her a message anyway. will also check in with Dehggi…


    2. Arghhh, it is the timezone thing, it is my 4am. I’d love to discuss, you guys go ahead, good thing is I have the vid in my computer (shhh), will join you guys in the morning.


      1. I am sorry, Lang. At some point, we will have to stage a liveblogging event based on Southeast Asian and American time demands, and the Europeans will have to sit it out or get up at 4 a.m. But I am sure we will come with thoughts to keep discussing well into your normal day rhythm!



        1. we can try the 4am-7am US time variety sometimes given i’m generally awake during this time, and it would allow “noon-ish” europe time and evening Asian. this might mean you might have to call sick from your job :p, or plan over a saturday or something… which might be more difficult…


          1. Extended lunch break at the office… That Night work, at least during class-free times. I’ll keep that in mind for the next Devieilhe event!



  1. Anik, no worries, I can see the difficulty coordinating a live event across the globe and keeping the sun up, it is impossile. We can work it out by keeping the thread. 🙂
