Tonight, May 2, at 9:30 PM, the first part of a live web cast in "The Stockholm Cimarosa Project" will be web casted by U-Sophia for the Drottningholms Slottsteater's new opera production "Il matrimonio segreto".
The web cast May 2nd includes a meeting with Stage Director Deda Cristina Colonna and the theater's Artistic Director and Conductor Mark Tatlow.
From the program: "Italian director Deda Cristina Colonna has chosen to interpret the characters' emotions and temperament in color and anatomy, which is also reflected in the imaginative costumes by Ann-Margret Fyregård, recently awarded a medal from king Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden for her work. The music is cheerful with many fine arias and ensembles. The Drottningholm Court Theatre Orchestra is conducted by Mark Tatlow."
Why Cimarosa? May 2nd, 9.30 PM
In this first on-line interactive meeting, Colonna and Tatlow will discuss: Why again Cimarosa? How important is the Original work, or is it just an excuse for extravagance? Where is Opera going? How is the balance between conductor and stage director? Please go to this link for the web cast May 2nd here.
