Everything’s coming up Jamie

Mezzo-of-the-moment Jamie Barton’s future Met assignments include “Jezibaba in a new production of Dvorak’s Rusalka and Fenena in Verdi’s Nabucco . . . [and] a revival of Norma in 2017-18. Perhaps most exciting, for Bartonites and Wagnerians alike, is the news that she will be Fricka when the Ring cycle returns to the Met in 2018-19.” [New York Times]
