[A smile to brighten up your Monday: Sonia Prina (Rinaldo) in response to birds in Handel’s “Rinaldo”, Glyndebourne 2011]
Yes, I know I capped this extensively in 2012, but that was before HD copies (thank you, Magic Channel).
And since we were swooning all over Prina’s 2014 Polinesso for Aix this weekend (which, as weekend plans go, was a very good one and also featured Petibon Piau Connolly & Feminist Ranting), here’s the similarities and differences when looking at her 2011 Rinaldo (also in relation to the very important discussion point of ‘wig or no wig’).
The Carsen “Rinaldo” will also be our next liveblog event this upcoming Saturday, to make this a very Prina week.
