Trivium pursuit

Since our usual (and always welcome) catalog of webcast radio opera is temporarily interrupted this week (get well soon, Betsy!), La Cieca offers as an alternative a video presentation that will become available at 2:00 PM EST (20:00 CET): Enescu’s Oedipe, from La Monnaie/De Munt in Brussels.

The production is conducted by Leo Hussain and staged by Alex Ollé and Valentina Carrasco of La Fura dels Baus.  You can watch this Oedipe on the La Monnaie website beginning at 2:00 PM. As always on Saturday afternoons, La Casa della Cieca will be open for your chatting pleasure. (Thanks to Opera Cake for sharing the news about this video webcast.)

UPDATE: Alternatives to this video have just been announced by the happily resurgent Betsy.
