Things you do not want to see when looking for your season programming: Exhibit A.
Remember when we talked out the Monnaie “Lucio Silla” in March 2017, and how that would definitely warrant a liveblog event? Here’s a reminder of the pitch:
Bonitatibus Ruiten Karthäuser and a Kratzer staging!
When I tried to look up the dates again to console myself with the stream prospect of “Silla” over not having heard Bonitatibus’ “Semiramide” program, I got the 404 above and the production seemed to have vanished. Noooo!
Some googling lead to hints (thanks to Distant Sounds) that the production has simply be postponed to the 2017/2018 season?
Please, Monnaie, put that information on the specific 404 above. I had a rather restless night over the disappointment of this having apparently been canceled because I had very much been looking forward to it.
Still, that leaves me with a Bonitatibus-shaped void in my ears that needs to be filled because I cannot possibly wait until 2018.
Since I won’t link to specific YT clips on Twitter for fear of them disappearing, let me address in this more private setting two brandnew offerings. And let me, once more, express my thanks to the incomparable gudrun74 for having us covered: head over here for some Signora Reale in the flesh.
