On 16 May, the project which strives to research and perform the "Ring of the Nibelung" from a historically informed performance practice perspective continues to the next round. Concerto Köln and Kent Nagano immerse themselves further into Wagner's soundscapes with the "Wesendonck Lieder" and Bruckner's Symphony No. 3 in D minor.
"Beethoven vs. Woelfl" is the motto of Luisa Imorde's album, "L'Affaire d'honneur", which was released in February. For her second CD, she refers to a competition between Ludwig van Beethoven and Joseph Woelfl.
What a spring season for Xavier Sabata! In February, the countertenor wowed both audience and press in the world premiere of Benet Casablanca's opera "L'enigma di Lea" at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.
For the opening of the Offenbach Year 2019, the Palazzetto Bru Zane extended an invitation in January to Parisian Théâtre Marigny and to “Les P'tites Michu” in Reims as well. A very comical production of two one-act plays by Offenbach and Hervé had the audience in stitches.
