MOZART and Luigi Nono at Salzburg

Luigi Nono meets "After Dido"? Mark Berry's back from Salzburg where he caught Luigi Nono's Al gran sole di carico d'amore. Strange thing about this production was that it didn't involve many of the usual Nono regulars. In theory that's not a problem at all: Nono believed in reinvention. But Katie Mitchell and a mainly British cast, of whom only Susan Bickley is is really experienced in new music? Would it work? Read what Mark says HERE.

Now the Mozarts are up now - Cosi and more !

Thank you! It might also be of interest to know that Oper Leipzig will be putting on Peter Konwitschny's production ( previously seen at Hanover and Edinburgh, I think) later this year. I am hoping to be able to go, but we shall see...
