Giulio Cesare returns to Glyndebourne 2018

Glyndebourne 2013

Yes, the one we know and love, with Sarah Connolly, Patricia Bardon and Dumaux reprising their 2005 roles and Christie conducting. Now with Joelle Harvey as Cleopatra. Sounds like another picnic date to me 😀

We also get Saul (two Handels??) with Karina Gauvin among others and the first edition of the Singing Competition, with a Mozart theme.

Also in an attempt to get Leander into 20th century opera we have a revival of the 2014 production of Der Rosenkavalier with Kate Lindsey in the title role 😉

Glynderbourne 2018

Glyndebourne 2015

Let’s look at the roster for Glyndebourne 2015:

Poliuto | Donizetti

Carmen | Bizet – Stephanie d’Oustrac in the title role… interesting idea; ponder, ponder…

Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail | Mozart – I am so going! I don’t even care who’s in it 😀

The Rape of Lucretia | Britten

Saul | Handel – more Iestyn and some Purves + Bolton; good chance I’m going

L’heure espagnole/L’enfant et les sortileges | Ravel – pretty sure I’m going, I love L’heure and I think DeNiese will be ok, she can for sure pull off the sex starved babe 😉
