[Headwear, neckwear, shirtwear, nightwear… Emanuela Galli (Poppea) and Giuseppina Bridelli (Nerone) in Monteverdi’s “L’incoronazione di Poppea”, Schwetzingen 2017]
While we did sort-of liveblog this “Poppea” as it aired on May 7th, the timing was such that many of us could only catch bits and pieces of it, so it’s on the schedule for a more leisurely rewatch tomorrow night, May 26th, at 9 p.m. (UTC+2).
The production is still available via ARTE Concert, and I don’t think any of us needs any incentive beyond the fact of “mezzo Nerone”. All interested White Shirts (and adjacent): see you tomorrow night. And bring some ice.
