  2. Have you seen? Maybe a Norma in Paris... And a movie around the Bellini's opera?

  3. No, I can hardly read the words, it's too small. But that's wonderful news, Norma in Paris! Does she say something about when?

    A movie would be great, hopefully in the style of the Maria documentation that I love, because she's so free in it.

    2. I have a similar problem ....but the are translation engines online -:).
      A Norma in Paris would be wonderful, staged in the Salzburg production? Would be even more wonderful, as I couldn't see any of the summer Norma's.

    3. She says, it would be her dream to do it in Paris......so no plans yet?????
      I wouldn't be surprised to see that Norma again somewhere else: Paris, Vienna, Zürich, all with opera houses in the right size -:).

  5. Charlotte, Didymus, I'm very sorry! If you click now on the new pictures, you can read the words and the text. And as an anonymous said, Cecilia says it would be a dream to play Norma in Paris and to do a movie around the Bellini's opera.

  8. If I understand correctly, there is an obvious mistake in the paper : Otello will be presented first at Théâtre des Champs Élysées and then in Salzburg (and not the opposite)

    1. Thank you for the link! A most interesting staging review.

  12. Although I would have wished for more details on why he thought Bartoli's Norma was one of the most amazing opera performances he's ever witnessed. And then nothing really about the performance of Bartoli or of her singing etc.

  13. It was simply theatrically overwhelming. I don't know if it could be explained.
