A Trip to Texas?

If only these two productions, 195 miles apart in space, weren't also months apart in time:

I suppose going to Texas twice in five months isn't practical. . . .

Looking at the Dallas Opera site, they're doing Salome with Deborah Voigt as Salome in November. Um, no.

They're also doing a double bill of La Wally and a new opera by Joby Talbot about Mt. Everest in February. I liked Talbot's score for the ballet Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that I saw in OC last year, but La Wally lasts a little over 2 hours, why the double bill?

More possible opera/ballet trips, this one in July 2015:

Death in Venice (Garsington) > Three Stravinsky ballets: Firebird, Soldier's Tale & Chant du Rossignol (Stuttgart) > Der Ferne Klang (Mannheim) > Martinu's Julietta (Frankfurt) > Konigskinder (Frankfurt). *sigh* Anyone have a spare $3000 or so lying around? :-)

Patrick - no.

Henry - my 2015 music travel plan is Bayreuth.

The only thing I can find out about Bayreuth 2015 is a new Tristan with Thielemann conducting. Can't remember, do you like Parsifal?

Lisa Hirsch said...

Yes, I do. Also, Tristan with Thielemann conducting sounds like a winner to me.
