    According to a brief item in the latest issue of Opernwelt, James Levine will be returning to the podium in January to conduct performances of Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust with Michael Spyres in the title role at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Marianne Crebassa and Feruccio Furlanetto will sing Marguerite and Méphistophèlés, respectively. He’ll also conduct performances of Mozart’s last three symphonies and Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with Hanna-Elisabeth Müller and Thomas Hampson as soloists.

    Not sure if this is news, but it is different. 2.5 minute trailer. Could not catch date at end because subscribe popup covered it, but it looks pretty recent.

    Interesting -- though with COVID-19 cases surging again in a number of countries, I wonder that the DOB is going ahead with performances.

    According to an item in the May issue of Opernwelt, Sir Tony Pappano will succeed Sir Simon Rattle as Music Director of the London Symphony Orchestra. Unfortunately, it also mentions that Sir Tony will be leaving his position as Music Director of the Royal Opera in 2024. He's been on the podium for so many wonderful productions at the ROH -- with recordings of many of them released -- that it's hard to imagine that opera house without him. Of course, this doesn't mean he'll no longer conduct opera performances, but I'm sure he'll be tremendously missed.
