These interviews about the 2012 season have been provided by the Santa Fe Opera.
The Pearl Fishers by Bizet
This interview with Nicole Cabell cannot be embedded.
Maometto II by Rossini
This interview with Dr. Philip Gossett cannot be embedded. They have chosen the Naples version with the tragic ending in Dr. Gossett's new version. At home I have an unwatched DVD with the happy ending.
King Roger by Szymanowski
Arabella by Strauss
This interview with Sir Andrew Davis cannot be embedded.
I am here because I simply could not resist the selection of repertoire. I've only seen Arabella on DVD and have not seen Maometto II or King Roger at all.
