Cher Public

Everyone else seems to like it

Don’t hold back, cher public, but join in this week’s discussion of off-topic and general interest subjects.

  • In case no-one else has mentioned it…

    Opéra Magazine’s recording of the month for March 2015, with their top “Diamant” award, is Piotr Beczala’s “The French Collection”.

    When Stella ran onstage in 1956,(birthday Mar.15, 1929)as Aida…I said, “Zinka WHO???” Glamorous,gorgeous voice………

  • zinka

      I love it Zinka. And that was as hot as it gets.

        Everybody remembers Brando, but, jeez, Hunter is incredible -- girl next door totally a slave to her hormones.

    Buster start packing your bags. Herlitzius will be doing Renata im Feurigem Engel here and Barrie Kosky will be doing the Regie (sorry to all the McVicar fans here).

    • Bill

      Feldmarschallin -- Herlitzius is also scheduled
      to sing 3 Kundry’s at the Budapest Staatsoper
      in April 2016 -- know idea if that is a role debut
      or not. Believe Stemme will be doing her first Kundry’s in Vienna at the same time next season.

      • Feldmarschallin

        No she has done the role before. More Walküres here next season as well.

    • Buster

      Thanks! Herlitzius was splendid in the Kosky Tristan und Isolde, so this is very tempting indeed. I tried to get a ticket for one of her Dresden Ortruds, but did not get through in time, unfortunately. I blame Netrebko.

      Kundry is a role I have been wanting to hear her in since she did the Schlingensief Parsifal. Alas, Budapest is out of the question.

      How was her Brünnhilde? I read somewhere she sounded a little underpowered?

  • Feldmarschallin

    And for all those who like me really don’t need another Ring but still…
