Hello from Antwerp

I said I might, and in the end I did come to Antwerp to see the new Calixto Bieito production of Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny

Flanders Opera in Antwerp

After the fantastic premiere of the Robert Carsen production of Tannhäuser  in Paris last Thursday, last night I saw a true gem production --and a rarity these days--  War and Peace at Köln Oper.

After atrocious Salomé and Faust in Paris, this week feels like cortisone to my love for opera. So, it's all good.

Will blog about all three shows later tonight when I come back to Paris.

Now I should go to see what the Flanders Opera looks like from the inside.
Greetings from the rainy city of diamonds.
