Werther in Vienna, March 2015

Staatsoper Vienna announced its 14/15 season today. There are three performances of Werther with Angela Gheorghiu performing Charlote. In a very good company, with Ramon Vargas as Werther and Ludovic Tézier as Albert, under Andrei Serban's direction and Frédéric Chaslin's baton.

Fans are ecstatic!

Put it down in your agendas: March 5, 9 and 13, 2015. I know where I'll be.

Tickets by application. But there are so many day tickets that if one really wants to be inside the opera house, there's nothing that can stop him/her.

Jumping up and down. Literally.

PHOTOS - My Adriana Lecouvreur in Vienna, March 8

I saw Adriana Lecouvreur for the second time in Vienna. I dived into the music, I was amazed by the beautiful production, I cried at the end of Poveri fiori. I was happy.  
I am happy, up on my fluffy cloud. Thank you, dear Angela!
