New in my collection : programme book for 'Persinette' by Albin Fries in Vienna
Yesterday, I have received in the mail the programme book for Persinette, an opera composed by Albin Fries, first performed in Vienna on December 21st, 2019.
It is a 18 pages brochure. It contains :
- synopsis ;
- short biographies of the composer Albin Fries and the librettist Birgit Mathon ;
- Daten & Fakten, essential facts about the opera ;
- 3 questions to the composer Albin Fries ;
- interview with the stage director Matthias von Stegmann ;
- important notions about opera explained by conductor Guillermo Garcia Calvo ;
- several color photos of rehearsals.
I now have the programme books for 712 contemporary operas. I have scanned all the covers and uploaded the images on flickr.
I am cataloguing all the programme books I have on LibraryThing. I hope to complete the process before the end of April 2020.
