“Alcina” countdown: 6 days to go!


(More or less what I am planning to do with my late October.)

Also, this:


In less that a week, the Early Music Staatsoper Double Bill will set in (an occurrence possibly unheard (of) in those halls, as in “9 nights of Gluck and Handel within 2 weeks”). So there will likely be coverage and lots of exciting squealing as my alter ego Martha will be out on the town repeatedly, and in the dear company of Opera Traveller Extraordinaire Dr. T. at that.

While I will try to channel the gist of it through Twitter,  I don’t think the blog will escape unscathed, so just to give all readers a fair warning: fangirling from the standing room queue ahead.
