Summer of Opera on Classical Source

Hold on to your top hats and opera glasses for a feast of opera reviews coming here on Classical Source during June and July, whether Glyndebourne (we have already covered Wagner’s Mastersingers), Longborough, Garsington (Eugene Onegin is in the can) and Grange Park.

When we get through that lot, it’s the BBC Proms: second night (July 16) is Boris Godunov with Bryn Terfel...
