- La Traviata from the Festival in Aix-en-Provence, with Natalie Dessay, Charles Castronovo and Ludovic Tézier (among others). This new production is directed by a talented French theater director Jean-François Sivadier --someone capable of bringing a deeper content of the piece, with a peculiar style-- and with Louis Langrée conducting the London Symphonic Orchestra.
- Cosí fan tutte live from Opéra National de Lyon (one of the artistically exciting opera houses in France) will be streamed for public viewing on big screens in several towns around Lyon and in front of the city hall in Lyon. This year they decided to share that pleasure with all of us giving one stream pipe to Arte Live Web too. Directed by Adrian Noble, and with Stefano Montanari conducting (very good in Mozart rep!), this should be a good show also thanks to a very good cast: Maria Bengtsson, Tove Dahlberg, Daniel Behle, Vito Priante, Elena Galitskaya, Lionel Lhote
There is no geographical restriction, i.e. both webcasts will be freely accessible to everyone.
Also note that after the live broadcast, both videos will remain available for free viewing 105 and 185 days respectively.
Thanks Aix, Thanks ONL, and Thanks Arte!
