Having brought Finnish National Opera’s season to a close in May, Measha Brueggergosman is once again in Helsinki and today opens in the Johannes Erath production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann.
Earlier this week it was announced that Welsh National Opera had won the Achievement in Opera Award at the UK Theatre Awards for the Artistic Leadership of David Pountney and Tomas Hanus. Congratulations all, we are immensely proud of you!
This weekend mezzo-soprano Katie Coventry makes her debut at the Salzburg Landestheater as Rosette in Massenet’s Manon.
"The audience celebrated him and the Philharmonic for several minutes with euphoric applause." Last week, at just 2 days notice, Filippo stepped in to perform Brahms' Piano Concerto No.2 with the Bad Reichenhaller Philharmonic under the direction of Christian Simonis. Following his concerto performance, he went on to perform in recital at the Edesche Concertzaal as well as at the season opening of Harrogate's recital series.
