Aix 2010: Pygmalion

The last of five operas at this year's Festival in Aix-en-Provence is Pygmalion and is to be premiered coming Friday, July 16. This production of Jean-Philippe Rameau's  opera/ballet is directed by Trisha Brown and William Christie will conduct his amazing Les Arts Florissants. The cast includes the most brilliant Ed Lyon, as well as excellent Sophie Karthäuser, Karolina BlixtEmmanuelle de Negri. The show was pre-premiered last month in Amsterdam, received mixed reviews, but again everyone praised the brilliance of the singers...
