Also online, as of right now, for a full week: the 2005 cast-as-God-intended Glyndebourne take on Handel’s “Giulio Cesare” (staged by McVicar, conducted by Christie) with Sarah Connolly in the lead redefinding your limits of Mezzo Swagger and that is all you need to know at this point.

(that, and there is a donation window in the upper right corner, if on your 5th rewatch you are able to tear your eyes away from the video for long enough to pay back to Glyndebourne. But doing that after the 10th rewatch is also fine.)

(Not sure about geoblocking, unfortunately)
