ENO’s rolling good times 2018-2019

Good news, ENO seems to be powering on most cylinders. Some interesting things written in English:

Oct – Nov 2018 Porgy and Bess! How cool, I’ve always wanted to see it, so yay ENO.

Feb 2019 Akhnaten is back already! 😀 I’m going twice again. Whoever wants to come along, please do, it’s a lot of fun. Maybe they’ll film it this time?

Apr 2019 Jack the Ripper – I wonder if it’s ok. I’ve always been in two minds about the subject – on the one hand unsolved mystery = yes, on the other serial killers = eh

May 2019 Dido (without Aeneas?) Dido and Belinda?

There’s also a new Salome (but this Strauss has been seen around town in recent years so I don’t know), and a new Merry Widow that could be fun.

  1. Dido (without Aeneas?) Dido and Belinda?
    progress has been made, hurrah!!

  2. I’m coming to Akhnaten, Dehgg! Only once, but enough to make up for having missed it last time. I can only credit my love of Ancient Egypt and my curiosity about Roth Costanzo’s voice for getting me along to an opera by Glass, of all people…!

    • Excellent! Let me know which date works for you 🙂 It’s really VERY melodic if quite repetitive (so that one melody, you’ll either love or hate 😉 ) and the production is very fun, with lots of interesting costumes and not overly “modern”.

  3. I had to look up Akhnaten, didn’t know it at all but the production looks good! I like Porgy and Bess as well, plus, no language confusion at ENO.

    • to be fair, aside from the Narrator, everyone speaks in dead languages in Akhnaten 😀 It’s actually my fave contemporary opera, goes very smoothly for my ears.
