Julia Novikova & Christiane Libor auf Naxos

Greetings from Strasbourg where we go tonight to see the last show of the new André Engel's production of Ariadne auf Naxos with two SUPERB singers, namely Julia Novikova [saw her recently in Rigoletto at the Komische Oper Berlin -- magnificent Gilda], and Christiane Libor [one of the top promising wagnerian sopranos, who we loved in Die Feen last year at Châtelet in Paris]. Engel is either good or not-good -- it's rarely in between, so I'm hoping for the best...

Here is one pic from this production [lifted from the ONR website]
in which you can see Libor (Ariadne in red) and Novikova (Zerbinetta in black).
