Es gibt ein Renée
We hear that yankee diva Renée Fleming will debut her Ariadne in Baden-Baden under new best pal Christian Thielemann's watchful baton during the season 2011-2012. To twitter prettily beside La Fleming, canadian soprano Jane Archibald will fill out the shoes of Zerbinetta. No word yet of the Bacchus, but we guess it won't be in the Siegfried heldentenor mould. Jonas Kaufmann wouldn't be wrong, and would of course have Decca drooling all over the live Mitschnitt. No word yet on how to get tickets, but the whole thing being in Baden-Baden, you better start saving your cents right about now.
