ROH rumours 2016/17

Mr Plow, factotum della cita

Winter, end of another year, time to plow ahead! (though around here snow is not even a speck in a cloud’s eye – currently 14C).

Way better than ROH productions are ROH rumours. I love them, though these were posted last July I think. Who cares? Let’s see:

Otello (Verdi) – 2017 – JK returns

The Nose (Shostakovich)  Oi, the music is tedious BUT! it really fits the story. Soooo… I might just suffer.

Cosi Fan Tutte (Mozart) – Autumn 16 – Wolfie’s back!
Production: Barrie Kosky
Production: Jan Philipp Gloger
Ferrando: Daniel Behle – the new darling of ROH? JK must be getting old or something
Fiordiligi: Corinne Winters – who?

Der Rosenkavalier (R Stauss): Dec 2016 – Jan 2017 – one can never have enough Marie Theres’ and Quinquin
Conductor: Andris Nelsons
Production: Robert Carsen
Marschallin – Renee Fleming – nobody else available?
Octavian – Alice Coote / Anna Stéphany – does AS have volume enough for 3 hours of Strauss? Also she seems to have a very dispersive voice.
Sophie – Aleksandra Kurzak – yay!

Semiramide (Rossini) – YAY! YAY! YAY! but who’s Arsace? (see comments bellow)
Semiramide – Joyce “I’m a soprano now” DiDonato
Assur – Ildebrando D’Arcangelo – eh

Norma (Bellini) Autumn 2016 – at long last but…
Norma: Anna Netrebko – nooooooo!!!! I thought she had moved on to Verdi 😦
Pollione: Joseph Calleja
Adalgisa: Sonia Ganassi
Oroveso: Brindley Sherratt

Königskinder (Humperdick) Production from Oper Frankfurt (2016)
Conductor: Sebastian Weigle
Original Director: David Bösch
Stage Designer: Patrick Bannwart
Costume Designer: Meetje Nielsen
Der Königssohn: Daniel Behle – see what I mean?
Die Gänsemagd (Goose Girl): Amanda Majeski – interesting

The Exterminating Angel (Thomas Ades)
Director: Tom Cairns

Mitridate, Re di Ponto (Mozart) – rock!
Conductor: Christophe Rousset
Mitridate: Michael Spyres – who dat?

  1. i always thought JDD’s range is like ACA, she sings alcina, elena (donna del lago). would have been great if she sings Norma! (keep your fingers crossed the MET might scoop in to “steal” AN and help you out 😉 )

  2. You can have AN for Norma but if anyone gets cold feet and takes Sondra from us there will be blood.

  3. Arsace in Semiramide will be Daniela Barcellona.

  4. Yes, I saw them together in La donna del lago, at the ROH a couple of years ago. Barcellona was amazing as Malcolm. I have a review on my site but only in Italian, sorry 🙂
