    This doesn't bode well: the YouTube clips we get when we search for Rolando mostly are all old. And the only recent one I saw, the one with a trailer/publicity for his new CD recording of La Clemenza...

    Good point.

    Maybe our new member Opera1 who is a voice teacher might listen to some clips and tell us how he thinks Rolando's voice is doing. By the way, can we tag someone here? I actually don't...

  8. A singer I like very much directs his first opera

    Opera Lively has interviewed Otto Katzameier twice. The first one in 2016 has already been published [click (here) to read it], and the second one just happened this past Thursday in my recent...
  9. Is Villazón truly back?

    Lately I've heard of Rolando Villazón making a comeback. I was browsing the 2018/19 season books in the European companies I just visited, and saw his name scheduled to sing Don Ottavio at the Wiener...

    I find that not always the best productions are the ones that make it to DVD. This is sometimes the case at the Met as well (the best Barber ever [the one with Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez],...

    Whew, made it back home! Now the trip is truly over... I'm already missing it, even though I'm exhausted.

    One of the highlights, was meeting our friend Jim Wieber and his friend Elizabeth.

    He...

    Hehe, now that it's been done, I wonder if I should send a report to the Guinness. 16 operas in a row, one every evening for 16 evenings, no breaks, by 8 opera companies, in 6 cities and 4 countries!...
  14. Update: After seeing the last show live,...

    Update:

    After seeing the last show live, Blaubart at the Komische Oper, I need to downgrade its score from A+ to A- (the review explains why).

    So now, the final ranking of the 16 performances...

    The problem is, I've seen 20 of these productions already, some more than once, so even if it's a different cast, it gets old. Only four new productions per season is not really what a major opera...

    Yes, I think it's been posted elsewhere. But the Met seems to be regressing. Only four new productions (while the European houses I've been visiting typically have nine or ten), and a lot of...

    The review of this production is now complete.

    Another thought - maybe part of the reason why I wasn't thrilled with this show is that I'm getting exhausted (and in parts I was having trouble...

    I just interviewed Nicole Chevalier. I had noticed, from the online version I saw earlier, that the singers didn't appear to be very agile in the coloratura parts: "This was mostly notable for the...
