Reasons to go to Venice: Vivaldi’s Orlando (2018)

(thanks Agathe for the tip)

Venice! Vivaldi! Sonia Prina! – 13/15/17/19/21 April 2018. Tickets going on sale… nowish? Anyway, let’s make it a trip – if anyone has figured out how to book. My screen isn’t moving when I try to get info on tickets. I mean the end of June 2017 is now.

  1. (hark, the CT have made it to Venice! and Torino too!)

    • omg, i’m gonna alert Anik too… Iervolino singing Arsace in Semiramide there too!

      • That Semiramide should be great!! Jessica Pratt has an AMAZING voice (just heard her in Tancredi in Valencia), although she might be a bit cold/aloof for Semiramide, you need blood and passion there. Alex Esposito was fantastic as Assur in Munich. And I have high hopes for Iervolino. Rocha is Rocha, what can I say.

        • Giulia, are you still in Valencia for tonight’s performance? If yes, we could meet up. And yes, that Semiramide is extremely tempting! Jessica Pratt’s Amenaide is very strong indeed, great voice and vocal technique, but I also liked her acting approach.

        • I agree about Pratt, really good Rossinian, should be a bigger name than she is. Though I heard her at Wigmore Hall and she doesn’t do ppp 😉 Iervolino’s voice is buttah.

    • at least the contralto is still running the show.

  2. Try accessing the page with Internet Explorer (I know…). With IE, you can click and see the info on how to buy tickets. You still will not get any info on WHEN though. I browsed through the Italian site and got nothing. But I wouldn’t worry, I don’t think it will go sold out quickly.

    • IE! thanks for the tip. You can buy tickets by fax 😀 they do keep it old skool. I hope they don’t do something mad like Halle where you pay through your nose for shipping and handling if you don’t have an Italian address.

  3. I’ll have to figure out the dates if travel is possible in that period when I’m home from, ehm, conference trip, and get back to you!
