Zurich 2012-2013

The Zurich Opera is now under new management, and it's just as I feared. Read here for their new season.  Why would the current season end with two count them two operas starring Cecilia Bartoli and a gala for Jonas Kaufmann?  Because the new regime prefers people like Edita Gruberova, a singer I would not even cross the street to see let alone the ocean.

Stewart Skelton is still appearing there, as are Matti Salminen, Thomas Hampson and Liliana Nikiteanu, all fine singers, but not the people I went there to see.

Addio.  I will miss Zurich.  I haven't been to Salzburg, but maybe now is the time.

I very much regret that I was not able to go to Zurich this winter.
