News & Plans
These are strange days and who knows when theatres and concert halls will re-open. As the world headed into the first round of lockdown, I was rehearsing Alberich with the Vienna Staatsoper but their Ring cycle was sadly cancelled. Inevitable further cancellations happened in Madrid and Oslo and so I have had some immensely valuable time home with my family and our crazy cats.
The October performances of Kurtag’s Fin de Partie in Valencia luckily went ahead and so that was wonderful. While there are future plans for Golaud in Geneva and Enescu’s Oedipe with the Komische Oper in Berlin, with the current second round of lockdowns nothing is certain.
There are some amazingly exciting plans in the pipeline for next year and beyond and I can only hope – crossing fingers and toes – that somehow we find solutions to the current situation so performances can go ahead.
Stay safe and best wishes, Leigh.
