  1. Great news! Do you thing Anna will sing all 9 performances?

  2. Mmmmm... Well according to the programme there is only Anna singing Juliette.... But it sounds strange to have one of the performances, just the day after of the previous one... What it is sure is that Anna will be there... is close to Wien and Erwin is singing around the same dates...

  3. Stephen Costello/Nino Machaidze will sing the title role on some of the performances. I have updated the post with the updated cast and dates

  4. Thank you, Carlos! I was sure there will be a second cast. To sing 9 performances within 20 days will be little bit crazy! So, I have chosen the right date, a push in the dark! Now I can only hope Salzburger Festspiele will give me a ticket.
