Thadieu: Arquez is the best Juditha ever!
Everyone else: Confermo!
That is all.

that’s great to hear, she was absolutely wasted on that TADW Teseo. Looking forward to all your takes on this 🙂
We were all surprised! All I knew was Idamante, which did not tip me one way or another. T was very apprehensive – and then Arquez started singing. We were all “wait a minute!” For me it was VERY different from how she sounded as Idamante, there were depths I did not imagine she had. All of this is not to take away from Iervolino, it’s just we knew what we were getting with her and Arquez came completely out the leftfield. Shows you what the right repertoire does for a singer. It was a special bonus to have both roles covered on this level. Also, so far I have only the best to say about Amsterdam Opera. Wonderful all around experience that will be reported at length.
NO WAY! You guys were there! We need better organization, I would have loved to meet you…. Wasn’t the music amazing? Arquez was spectacular, and Iervolino stole my heart, as usual.
Oh, no! Tell you what, I for one did not even realise it was the premiere, the atmosphere was so relaxed!
ps: the music was amazing – one of my top 3 operas!
well, I do have time now to write a lot, after realising the Pique Dame performance I had a ticket to was yesterday whilst I was flying 😀
you should’ve seen my face yesterday when I checked my ticket! All for Juditha!
could have stayed for Penelope too!
it is possible to call in sick 😉 I mean the weather was rough…
ps: that 50 year t-shirt is way girlie! Makes me look younger and all 😀
Hehe, I thought you got the boys’ version, apparently the actual girly version was too girly for T!
I’m sure it’s not the boys’ version, it followed curves and all 😉
jeah i was missing (physically) the right curves 😉 . Agathe you should try it out. i left in room.
Ah, OK, I will!
It’s quite tight at the waist, this is apparently only for opera audience with model proportions!
like me 😀
haha. you think you can wear it? then i can get the “curvy-boy” version for myself?
Hmm, no, actually, I like to be able to breathe.
You should still get the boy version!
Oh, no! Sounds a bit like my double-booked Venice flight. But Juditha would have won that conflict anyway, no?
wait, there is more: THERE was a show today as well – and I missed that, too. Christie and his band doing French drinking songs. I am such a ditz.
Snort, it seems Juditha got you a bit confused! Noo, really Christie?? (at least it wasn’t because of knitting I hope?)
not because of knitting, because I did not have the tickets sent home (I checked my tickets yesterday and didn’t see anything else beside PD), instead kept at Wiggy. Yes, sadly Christie at Wiggy.
Well, I’m relieved…, but yes, too bad!
Oh, yes, I am upset because there are no more performances I can attend, but on a Juditha – Pique Dame scale there is no contest (especially if Antonenko was that bad).
ps- we should clarify that she’s the best in the sense we (us) never had a chance to hear Mingardo or Prina or Hallenberg live as Juditha, not even in concert.. and staging was wishful..
yes, the best of the existent ones.
