Just received this Tuesday
I have just received the following in the mail :
- June 2014 leaflet from the Wiener Staatsoper ;
- Programma preliminare of the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro.
This year, the program of the Rossini Opera Festival is the following :
- Armida, conducted by Carlo Rizzi, directed by Luca Ronconi
with Carmen Romeu, Randall Bills, Dmitry Korchak, Carlo Lepore, Antonino Siragusa
- Il Barbiere di Siviglia, conducted by Giacomo Sagripanti, in a semi-staged version
with Chiara Amaru, Felicia Bongiovanni, Paolo Bordogna, Alex Esposito
- Aureliano in Palmira, conducted by Will Crutchfield, directed by Mario Martone
with Lena Belkina, Raffaella Lupinacci, Jessica Pratt, Dempsey Crivera
It seems Aureliano in Palmira has been staged only twice since 1990 :
- in Savonne in October 1991 ;
- in Martina Franca in July 2011.
