NEWS from ROH. Rumour has it...

... According to Opera Magazine we'll get a Tosca revival in Spring 2011 with a starry A-cast of Gheorghiu, Kaufmann, Terfel, cond. Pappano. B-cast includes Martina Serafin...says somebody on Intermezzo, in a comment to a post related to the new season at Royal Opera House.

So, you see, it's enough for somebody to throw a piece of information and it's imediatelly followed by suppositions. The conclusion is that people are anctious to find what the news season brings. Go to that blog for more news. The 2010 - 2011 season will be announced in April.

Oh, and if someone bought the March issue of Opera Magazine, please let me know what else is there. Please, pleease!

  1. A revival of Tosca at the ROH, I wouldn't miss it for the world. After the last summer run with Angela and Bryn...Kaufmann is most than welcome to join the production :-)
    Let's hope this is for real.

  2. Btw, the following which has so far only been rumoured seems to be officially scheduled now: Adriana Lecouvreur, Deutsche Oper Berlin (concert performance)on 2nd und 5th of October 2010 with AG and Jonas Kaufmann. A friend got the info in writing from the opera house as part of the pre-info for sponsors. A further (not yet confirmed detail): The performances, to be conducted by Alberto Veronesi, will be recorded to be released apparently with Deutsche Grammophone(which would significantly increase the likelihood of La Madame actually showing up).

  3. What a cast! I'll start saving for a trip to London next spring, especially that I missed Angela's Tosca last summer.
    And maybe for Berlin Adriana Lecouvreur, if it's confirmed; or maybe the London version in November? We'll see...Anyway, a lot to look forward to! Thank you for the great news!

  4. And I guess this is just the beginning. There'll be concerts for sure. There's nothing scheduled in May, June and August yet. It will be hard to choose where to go. But for the moment I'm glad that both Tosca and Adriana are in Europe.
