[A new entry to the Red Shirts research discussion: Daniela Barcellona (Tancredi) in Rossini’s “Tancredi”, Florence 2005. – Photo Credit: since I don’t have my DVD at the office, this shot comes via the folks of operaclick]
Time for another Rossini contralto musico epic – the one that started it all, “Tancredi”! We’re liveblogging a production that also started an ongoing interest in the work of Daniela Barcellona for more than one of us, the 2005 Maggio Musicale take, this upcoming Saturday, Mar. 18th, at the usual hour of 9 p.m. (UTC+1).
Anyone wanting to blog along: welcome!
The production is not on YT any longer (not that I could find), but out on DVD. Anyone wishing to blog along but without access to a working copy, feel free to leave us a comment or an email.
