    Next opera for me is my first prom of the season seeing Pelleas et Melisande. It's only semi-staged but the proms never disappoint me and the Albert Hall is such a great venue in my opinion. Also got myself a ticket to see ENO's revival of Akhnaten next year as a (very) early birthday present which is probably the most excited I've been for a show in a long long time!

    My mother and I just bought tickets to the San Diego Opera for next season. As one would expect, they are performing some old warhorses: The Marriage of Figaro (Oct. 28), Rigoletto (Feb. 10), and Carmen (Apr. 7). I like these operas, and I am looking forward to seeing them live. I would imagine that the stagings will be very traditional; full-blown Regietheater productions are rare in the United States. (I'm probably about the only person around here who actually likes Regietheater, but the traditional stagings are fine too.)

    I might also try to check out something from the Los Angeles Opera, the San Diego Opera's Detour series, or one of the nearby universities next season; although I like the old warhorses, it would be nice to see something more modern or off-the-beaten-path as well.

    Les Troyens
    Wiener Staatsoper
    Sunday October 21st.

    Been to Vienna and the house before (quite a few years ago), but this is my first ever Les Troyens, and first for many of these singers.

    Conductor Alain Altinoglu
    Director David McVicar
    Sets Es Devlin
    Costumes Moritz Junge
    Lighting Wolfgang Göbbel
    Choreographer Lynne Page
    ~
    Enée Brandon Jovanovich
    Chorèbe Adam Plachetka
    Panthée Peter Kellner
    Narbal Jongmin Park
    Iopas Paolo Fanale
    Ascagne Rachel Frenkel
    Cassandre Anna Caterina Antonacci
    Didon Joyce DiDonato
    Anna Margarita Gritskova

    I've been pondering this for a while, and after an evening out drinking I got home and pushed that button to grab the last affordable ticket. Now I'll try to make a 5 night opera trip around it. Probably Prague and Vienna, and onto Budapest.

    The McVicar Troyens is superb and that looks a great cast. My next opera = Rossini's Adina.

    I'll be very interested in hearing your thoughts on this...

    I will be going to opera broadcasts at the cinema next season but I certainly will not be going to the opera house itself. It is extremely expensive and the chances are the production will be in the hands of a regietheatre idiot of a director who is intent on giving us his own 'vision' rather than the composer's. Sad, but I am not willing to spend the money on such a chancy business any longer.
