[Dear Bayerische Staatsoper, I would like to see:
Sergej Prokofjew Der feurige Engel, or The Fiery Angel with Evelyn Herlitzius. The one time I saw this in San Francisco it was amazing.
Richard Wagner Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg starring Jonas Kaufmann. Need I say more?
Jaques Fromental Halévy La Juive with Kristine Opolais and Roberto Alagna.
Jean-Philippe Rameau Les Indes galantes with Lisette Oropesa
Giuseppe Verdi Un ballo in maschera with Piotr Beczala, Simon Keenlyside and Anja Harteros. ]
The list came out today and this is what we get. See calendar for dates.
Ariadne auf Naxos
Un ballo in maschera
I wanted Rameau, but it was never very likely. I am posting this to brag that I got 4 of my 5 requests.
