What to see at Glyndebourne 2017
Important: next year, General ticket sale will start at the unusual hour of 6pm on Sunday, 5 March. They really want to keep us at home on a Sunday afternoon.
- Hipermestra (Cavalli) 20 May – 8 July (new production)
Conductor/ Orchestra: William Christie | Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Emöke Baráth takes the title role.
- La traviata 21 May – 19 June and again (different cast/conductor) 1 – 27 August
Kristina Mkhitaryan and Joyce El-Khoury take the title role.
- Hamlet (Brett Dean) 11 June – 16 July (new commission)
Conductor/ Orchestra: V. Jurowski | London Philharmonic Orchestra
Cast: Allan Clayton (Hamlet), Sarah Connolly (Gertrude), Barbara Hannigan (Ophelia), Rod Gilfry (Claudius), Kim Begley (Polonius), John Tomlinson (Ghost of Old Hamlet)
Badass cast, I wonder about the music.
- Ariadne auf Naxos 25 June – 27 July
Conductor/ Orchestra: Cornelius Meister | London Philharmonic Orchestra
2015 Operalia Winner Lise Davidsen takes the title role. So young and already Ariadne! I am as usual tempted to go but…
- Don Pasquale 13 July – 23 August
Conductor/ Orchestra: Giacomo Sagripanti | London Philharmonic Orchestra
- La clemenza di Tito 26 July – 26 August (new production)
Conductor/ Orchestra: R. Ticciati | Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Tito: Steve Davislim
Vitellia: Alice Coote
Sesto: Kate Lindsey
Servilia: Joélle Harvey
Leander and I have already talked about picnic-ing for this one (and probably Hipermestra as well). Anyone who wants to join us is more than welcome!

(i’m so tempted by the picnic photo!)
by the way, it looks like ACA’s WH date has disappeared…
oh no! do you happen to see if Petibon’s date is still available? Though I’m debating… at about the same time ACA is scheduled to sing La Voix humaine in San Francisco.. and if that’s the case I might head over there instead to hear 20min of only her singing 🙂
Petibon is still available. I say you book La voix humaine as you know I heartily recommend it. It’s actually about an hour long and she might pack it up with something else too.
wow, i just saw, ACA’s La voix humane is in a 300-seat theater! and she’s only singing that, 3 nights in SF
book all three 😀
way to go SF, for having 300 seat theatres!
I’d take a punt on the Brett Dean Hamlet. Ms. Hannigan is pretty picky about the projects she gets involved in and while I don’t always share her tastes she’s a pretty good judge.

(now attempt to post comment while logging in…, sorry for the spam, please delete whatever you think is not belonging here, but i must be able to ramble on your blog 😀 )
well, they need to be approved but they seem to be working. Rambling always approved 😉
now attempting using my original browser, after logging out and in now…
your browser might have an expiration date 😉
i tried twice more that didn’t work. i think if it doesn’t have an official “reply” button on actual site apparently i can’t reply! (i’m persistent!, let’s try if now wp might think i’m spamming you and block me with this one too…)

aha, is this if the thread is too long in the comments? I know you can choose how many comments you can allow in a thread. But normally you should be able to bypass that and reply from your bell icon.
ja, i’ve just tested now, it’s the bell icon that i can no longer replying… which means i will have to reply from the official site :-), more loading madness, yeeha. (though will be difficult on tiny phone coz there i have to use the app)
well, I changed the nesting of comments to 10 rows instead of 5 so that might help.
last spam i promise 🙂 . So, i’ve now also verified that from the reader mode i can not comment, nor from the bell. only if i’m physically at your site. An interesting note though, from this pix. I tested from the reader mode, it shows that the comment was sent! (i even saw it!, forgot to capture the screen). Then, i resent the comment again, and get the usual warning that i’ve just sent a duplicate comment, which is captured in the pix. But if i’m at your site like now, i don’t see that original comment i made from reader mode.. so thought i show a pix as documentation 🙂
thanks for tolerating my persistence…
so it looks like you can comment from reader but it’s not showing if you try to post it?
if i’m on reader mode, i made a comment, it shows ONCE! THen if i reload, it disappears. and if i come here, it’s vanished. i think it’s a wp bug. they just rolled out some crappy reader-mode look and things haven’t been loading properly for me on mac…
yea, that reader more look is pointless (but so are many of their updates). The timelapse is funny though 😉
oh, even more amazing, i left that page un reloaded and it’s even showing time-lapse since the comment 😀
I need a confused smilie here. It doesn’t look like there’s anything I can do about it…
i know, i don’t think it’s you, but rather wp. at least i’ll boost your post view considerably considering my replying rate.
timelapse is still going strong, now updating to 25min 😉
yes, the post views are very fine! thanks 😉
(woke up, new day, trying to comment again from reader 😉 )
did it work? happy 2017!
yes, it works, just in time to end 2016. happy new year to you!!
