Interesting things lie in the future.

Cecilia Bartoli's Salzburg Norma will play in Salzburg this summer and again in Zurich next season.  She is also doing Le Comte Ory next season in Zurich.

Salzburg Festival this summer will also have CB doing Iphigenie en Tauride and Sophie Koch as the Rosenkavalier.

Anja Harteros will sing Arabella at the Munich opera festival this summer.  And Netrebko, and Damrau, and Kwiecen, and Pape, and....  So much.

Jonas Kaufmann will sing Walther in Die Meistersinger in Munich next season.  I'm hoping it will stream.  Next season Roberto Alagna will sing in La Juive in Munich, too. 

Maybe I should move to Munich.  Or please be sure to stream everything I like.

I just bought Barbara Hannigan's Lulu, and now I see that it will stream from Munich in June (Marlis Petersen) and it's HD from the Met in November (Marlis Petersen).  I should be an expert after this.  I've already seen it 3 times.  (Evelyn Lear, Ann Panagulias, Christine Schaefer.)
