Interview in Austrian Newspaper

'Salzburger Nachrichten' made an interview with Cecilia about Norma, of course, and her directorship. She gave a little hint about the next theme: "the audience always wants to be stimulated and surprised. Therefore, in 2014 probably something funny, excessive, maybe even a theme about a man."

Any ideas?

    1. Funny Carmen? An alcohol factory taster instead of a tobacco-worker?

  3. So this is my fantasy--I've always wanted to see Don Giovanni done as a comedy, so DG with Cecilia doing the Don and Liliana as Leporello. Sorry. I got carried away.

  4. Don Giovanni was what I thought of, too. Perhaps her future concerts are another hint: Mozart and the classical Vienna. Or what about a Barbiere/Figaro theme?

  7. It definitely won't be Carmen. As you can read in this again very interesting (Germain) interview, she says: 'I can't and don't have to follow any mezzo patterns. Carmen I have not sung until today. And I do not miss it, especially since we currently have wonderful performers.'
