LULU-Berg--What an experience!!!

Posted on October 19, 2009 at 12:01 PM

My Berg LULU experience is over for now! It will be another two years before I have the opportunity of singing this again! I loved delving into the world of this incredible composer and had two very different but equally rewarding experiences--in London's Royal Opera House at Covent Garden and in the Teatro Real of Madrid.

It was the first time I had ever created the role "Geshwitz"  and the experience was made all the more wonderful working  with Christof Loy and Tony Pappano! My cast was stellar; fantastic colleagues, great acting/singers!  In both London and Madrid I felt lucky to meet and work with such terrific people!

I look forward to singing this role again at the Bastille in Paris in 2012! Right now I'm learning the Berg "Seven Early Songs". Now that this world is open to me, I'm diving right in!

All the best!

The Berg world is pretty new to me as well, but I certainly enjoyed the opening night in Madrid - I flew in specifically for that performance! Understandable the singers took home all the credit for the performance!! Great job and I´m looking forward in seeing you again only next time in Brussels with legendary José van Dam in Don Quichotte! Wish you could set up a concert tour for Scandinavia! You will be warmly welcomed here in Stockholm! And bravo for your Orlando Furioso at the Théatre des Champs-Elisées a couple of years ago - I am looking forward to the next performance already!!
