Mes petits lapins, the pickings are relatively slim right now, but check Operacast.com frequently for updates and full broadcast details. Here are a few webcasts that jingle vilaine fille's bells:
Vivaldi's La fida ninfa from Paris with a cast of superb early music stylists (Cangemi, Panzarella, Jaroussky, Regazzo).
Studio recordings of Haydn's Orfeo ed Euridice (Bartoli, d'Arcangelo); Massenet's Esclarmonde (Sutherland, Bonynge); and Rossini's Mosè in Egitto (Raimondi, Scimone).
A London recital by Iain Bostridge of Heine settings by Robert Schumann.
Henze's The Bassarids.
Janacek's Jenufa from the Prague National Theatre, led by Pavel Vanek; Lortzing's Undine with a wonderful old-time cast (Gedda, Prey, Frick et al.); and Smetana's Libuse.
Coming up next week is Wagner's Ring from the Netherlands Opera, in what apparently will be an ear-opening interpretation. (By the way, the Netherlands Opera is translating and reprinting one of my program essays. Isn't that cool?)
Buon ascolto a tutti ! *smooch*
