Some interesting programming in Avignon next season: Roberto Alagna performs Le dernier jour d’un condamné on March 9 and 12, 2014, and in between (March 11) will be a concert by Milos Karadaglic, youthful protégé of Angela Gheorghiu.

    Incidentally, having heard Le dernier jour d’un condamné in a concert version, I find it no worse than any number of contemporary scores and I actually much prefer it to, say, Prima Donna.

      Aye, italics should stop after “condamné”:

      …in a concert version, I find it no worse than any number of contemporary scores and I actually much prefer it to, say, Prima Donna.

    This must be some sort of quid pro quo for the theater to stage the Alagna opera. I wonder what the part of the bargain might be.

    • oedipe says:

      It has already been staged by the Budapest Opera a few years ago, without Roberto. (You can find it on u-tube).
