    The finals for Plácido Domingo’s Operalia competition are coming up in a few days.
    https://www.operaliacompetition.org/prague-2019

    When I looked at the list of singers who will be participating, I was excited to see that some Cincinnati Opera alumni are among them, including our wonderful Roméo and Zerbinetta from this summer’s productions of Roméo et Juliette and Ariadne auf Naxos, Matthew White and Liv Redpath. Also among the “alums” are Piotr Buszewski, Tybalt in Roméo et Juliette; Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, Ottone in last year’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea; and Christian Pursell, who created the role of Senator Potter’s assistant in the 2016 world premiere of Gregory Spears’ Fellow Travelers, and also sang (Liberto and four other roles in L’Incoronazione di Poppea.

    Of course, I hope all of the finalists will do their best, and will be interested to see who the award winners will be.

    For fans of Semele, this is an interesting 30 minutes with Sir John Eliot Gardiner.

    They toured with it but I didn't know it was on otherwise I'd have gone.
