[“Is it really still two full more days?” – “Yes, I am afraid so.” – Even Ismene is already donning a white shirt of sorts in anticipation! – Sabine Devieilhe (Ismene) and Christophe Dumaux (Farnace) in Mozart’s “Mitridate”, Paris 2016]
Casual reminder that the susual suspects will convene this Saturday, Sept 24th, at 9 p.m. (UTC+2) to liveblog the 2016 Paris “Mitridate” with each other. Invitation open to all to read and comment along.
I cannot guarantee for much coherence in the comments (probably not any coherence, to be honest), but for much happiness and swooning as we discover new angles, both literal and figurative, of a staging that, so far, has been my personal 2016 highlight. As for the musical side: Emmanuelle Haïm. Le Concert d’Astrée.

*when is permament fangirl mode ever not on?*
PS. Whoever still needs a blog-along copy of the new ARTE video with the sound synced to the video, thanks to thadieu, can contact us via email or drop a comment below.
