[formative moments of WhiteShirtery: Vesselina Kasarova (Sesto) in Mozart’s “La clemenza di Tito”, Salzburg 2003]
It’s arguably THE Tito of the 2000s so far, and, not arguably, a core Kasarova performance, which also is in no small amount responsible for the coinign of the term “White Shirt” in our context.
On the liveblog menu this Sunday, Jan. 22nd, at 9:30 (!) p.m. (UTC+1) is Mozart’s “La clemenza di Tito” from the 2003 Salzburg Festival.
But there is so much more: Harnoncourt! Röschmann! Barbara Bonney! Garanča! Michael Schade und Luca Pisaroni!
The production is out on DVD, which most of us likely own, but there is also an online safety repository on YT that is quite easy to find in a search (not the Magic Channel this time. If you need the exact link, we’ll publish it before the party starts on Sunday – not posting here now to protect the source).
