At next year’s Salzburg Whitsun Festival, Cecilia will sing Maria in West Side Story! Gustavo Dudamel will conduct the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela.

I've summed it up here:

Pics from Iphigénie en Tauride online

they have published some pics from rehearsals of Iphigénie.

Quite rough stuff, but I love Cecilia's strong and decided face in the first one.

Giulio Cesare 2012 on YOUTUBE and about Le Nozze Figaro 1999

For a little while Giulio Cesare 2012 was available on the internet, ARTE.TV , but no longer.

BUT... it is also on Youtube in 3 parts

I filmed it from PC with my videocamera and if you want that, email me at   Quality obviously not the best but better than nothing.

Did same with  Le Nozze di Figaro 1999 in the MET with also Terfel and Fleming.  This not from the internet but my broken harddiscrecorder (I have 2). Filming it from TV was my only way of making new DVDs.
This is not illegal as it was a TV recording I got from Australia,
English subtitles.

Here's a duet :

Cecilia will sing in Brussels with Sunnyboy Dladla and an old interview

On 16 December she will sing in Brussels not with Villazon but South African tenor Sunnyboy Dladla, who sang with Renée Fleming in Cape Town.  Interesting for those who don't like Villazon that much.
He sang in Zurich, which is how they will know him.  , page 55

Start of ticket sale is 19 May for Bozar friends, 26 May for the general public.

And now an old interview of 2011 that I did not find here on this forum:
Very long, an hour !  But in German
If it WAS published here, then now a nice reminder in this "dry" period of not much news.
