    Well the ten-year-old asked today about going to Butterfly. She asked if it was going to be as funny as Bartered Bride. I explained the plot to her and said it had beautiful music. She said she'd go once she had been reassured that, yes, she was allowed to cry. So that's what is coming up for me.

    Oh bless her. I hope it's a decent production.

    And, next Saturday I will be in London for Tosca. In may I will go to see Traviata in Amsterdam. Lots of thing to look forward to.

    Please let us know what you think of the Don in Prague.
    That's brilliant! You ever been to that theatre? I've never even been to Prague. I'll file a report here when I return on how it is. You're right about the tickets, we got ours for about 25 euros each, a matinee show.

    Enjoy Tosca, and Traviata!

    Three more operas for me before the Met season ends: Traviata with Damrau and Domingo, Giulio Cesare with Natalie Dessay, and Dialogues of the Carmelites with Patricia Racette. Not sure which I'm looking forward to with more trepidation. There's a lot of churning around and worry in there. Well, we'll see.

    During Easter i'm going to Germany to visit some friends from family and i'm taking my mother with me. I'll be in Dusseldorf.

    Having this, i've research with operas are to be staged around there. So i've chosen Le nozze in Dortmund (http://www.theaterdo.de/detail/event...bile=dcfexlaae)

    Meanwhile in Dusseldorf, Die Walkure and Falstaff is to be played and in cities near by (Essen, Bonn and Köln) Parsifal, Aida and Norma. However, due the fact of bringing my mother to see an opera, it would be better for her to attend Mozart's opera. Therefore, Figaro here i come!


    Oh and 22th March i'll see Verdi's Requiem in Oporto, Portugal. This will be very special for me.(http://www.casadamusica.com/Cultural...D-AA768C3E0E00)

    hey Dongiovanni!

    I went to the opera in Prague, as I said earlier on the thread. I won't give much away, because it's a performance well worth seeing. Great cast and excellent orchestra. Some extra-textual happenings, some of which work. We both thought this was a much better effort than the recent one in London. I'll be curious to hear what you make of it all when you're done, and then we can share a fuller impression. But I liked a lot about this performance, particularly the Don, Leporello and a magnificently coquettish and striking Zerlina.

    The test for this opera is how they handle the finales and which version they use: the Viennese, without the epilogue, or the Prague. I'm not even going to give anything away here!

    Anyway, enjoy all your shows, and hopefully you'll let me know what you make of this performance.

    The Estates Theatre, by the way, is stunning, and they have a beautiful statue outside, of the Commendante.

    Cheers!

    Next opera for me... Parsifal at the Deutsche Oper, Berlin. On Good Friday, of course!

    To be followed the next day by Die Meistersinger.

    And on Easter Sunday - Tannhäuser!
