Cher Public

Space cadet

Who’s that girl in the “Hot Voodoo” wig riding on a rocket? Why, none other than the lovely and talented Cecilia Bartoli, offering us a glimpse of her Cleopatra at the Salzburg Pfingstfestspiele, which is a German word for “Memorial Day.” She heads a glittering company including Andreas Scholl,  Anne Sofie von Otter, Philippe Jaroussky, Christophe Dumaux and Jochen Kowalski in Giulio Cesare, to be  telecast tomorrow afternoon starting at 2:42 PM EDT, and the cher public are invited both to watch the show in the embedded player after the link and to chat in La Casa della Cieca.

If the embedded player does not appear above, please go to the arte.tv website to view it.
