This coming Monday and Tuesday (November 3 & 4) finds The Classical Source reviewing six operas in two days. First up is a foursome of Idomeneo, Boris Godunov, The Cunning Peasant (a rarity by Dvořák) and La bohème. And on Tuesday, The Left-Hander (a recent work by Rodion Shchedrin) and Les Martyrs rub shoulders. The latter, by Donizetti, is the latest project for Opera Rara. So, our reviewers will be out in force ... reporting on their theatrical experiences. Tune into The Classical Source to find out what they think...
Oh, and at the end of the week we will be at Chelsea Opera Group’s presentation of Jacopo Foroni's Cristina, regina di Svezia. Maybe it will be Lucky Seven in total. In any case, we carry on, and the following week includes Metropolitan Opera’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. No stage-fright for Classical Source!
