Tito returns to Munich in February
During a lull at work I got good news: Bayerische Staatsoper is livestreaming their new production of Clemenza on 15 February, not yesterday, as I feared (yes, it premieres on a 10th of the month, but February, not January, and they are not livestreaming the premiere either). That’s the day after my ROH Don Giovanni 😀 Mozart overindulgence on my week off, yes!
- Tito: Toby Spence
- Vitellia: Kristine Opolais
- Sesto: Tara Erraught
- Annio: Angela Brower
- Servillia: Hanna-Elisabeth Muller
- Publio: Tareq Nazmi
- Conductor: Kirill Petrenko
Hurrah for young singers! Opolais doesn’t seem to be known for Mozart but based on the single clip I heard I am rooting for her to be a good Vitellia, because that voice sounds like it could be badass. (I can’t really tell what she’s doing with that aria because Don Carlo bores me to death.) The others sound fresh as well. It’s getting exciting. Now let’s hope it’s not a wigfest.
