I am so excited to see our new opera house for the first time. And with José Cura. Magic, I hope.
I am so happy I did not go to Milan to see Carmen with Kaufman, Schrott and Adriana Damato. I get reports that Damato was not the right voice for Micaela. CARMEN, I have seen it too many times. It would have to be really extraordinarily good for me to love it. And as I read Emma Dante's idea of CARMEN was simply wrong and badly executed too.
