Operalovers in Sweden and the capital Stockholm can be lucky. Nina Stemme will debut as Minne in Puccini's "La Fanciulla del west" just before Christmas. Performances run from December 17 to January 31.
On stage is also John Lundgren/Lucio Gallo as Jack Rance and Aleksandrs Antonenko/Torsten Kerl as Dick Johnson. The rest of the cowboys are sung mainly of in-house singers. Italian opera specialist Pier Giorgio Morandi will conduct.
Creative team is headed by Christopf Loy, for the first time at Royal opera in Stockholm. Loy has done several works in Gothenburgh and we can only congratulate Royal Opera that they at last has got him to Stockholm. This will surely raise the level of opera in Stockholm. Stellar cast, stellar creative team!
Hey ho boys, let's play some cards!
