All the queer deities of Mt. Olympus will be smiling down upon us, according to Vivica Genaux, this upcoming Tuesday, May 2nd, with a livestream of Cavalli’s “La Calisto” in the recent Mariame Clément staging on Culturebox. The post mentions no hour yet, but since the live show starts at 8 p.m. (UTC+2), I’d say it’s a date. If anyone is interested in some additional information: Strasbourg has put their entire Pre-Opening talk with Genaux, Clément and Rousset on YT.
Caution: The show might be geoblocked, in which case we’ll have to postpone the liveblog until we hopefully get hold of a stream copy.
But before that, there is another date to attend, tomorrow, Sunday, April 30th, also at 8 p.m. (UTC+2) with Handel’s “Ariodante” in a concert performance from Carnegie Hall with DiDonato and Prina (aka HairGame Showdown!) that will be livestreamed on medici.tv.
Now this should be viewable with a free medici.tv account, but again, it could be unavailable (aka for paid users only). I say we meet up at the hour and see for ourselves whether we can get in. As always, White Shirts and adjacents invited to join in!
