Warm up for Salzburg 2014

So I think it's time to warm up for Salzburg. :)

I found an article on Salzburg24.at, not a very sophisticated one, but it's only the beginning. They visited a rehearsal of 'Cenerentola' and again, it's not a traditional production. It takes place in present time, Cenerentola is a waitress. The director, Damiano Michieletto, who performs 'La Cenerentola' for the very first time, doesn't want to teach the past, but tries to connect the preferably lively people on stage with the audience. 

Though four singers are old stagers in 'Cenerentola', a very creative and relaxed atmosphere prevails (says the director). Cecilia says, open mind is the secret. And, concerning her voice, the love to her work and the passion for music are the best things against overloading.

If you have a Facebook account (or perhaps it's open to everyone?) you can see some nice pictures on Javier Camarena's account and get used to Cecilia in very red. :)

Salzburger Festspiele on FB, too.

  2. Thanks for this Charlotte, now there is something to look forward to, precisely the Cenerentola. It would be intresting to se or read about how the critics will write about Cenerentola, because it will be staging in the present.

  5. Plus a recipe by Cecilia for Capelletti in Brodo di Carne. Sounds delicious - but is that true, one has to mix the dough for 20 minutes???

  10. Let's collect the reviews in the review section, for it is easier for Klaus to copy and paste them. :)

    I have another very nice to read article, written from Cecilia as an Editorial of this year's Festival Paper: In German and in Englisch (both PDFs).

    1. The link to the German one is wrong, here's the correct one: click!

  11. And another one, not a review, but - what is 'Randgeschehen' in English?? DrB? A surrounding event perhaps? Well, just click to see Cecilia wearing a Dirndl and you can hear her laugh seeing the picture. :)
