From Glyndebourne !!

Dear Friends,

I just finished my first week of rehearsals at the Glyndebourne Festival. I am so excited to be part of this new production of La Finta Giardiniera by Mozart.

The musical staff is led by young and super talented conductor Robin Ticciati. Extremely inspiring !!

The stage is being directed by Frederic Wake-Walker, whom it has been a real pleasure to get to know and collaborate with. He has a real special way to work on characters and the relationships between them. I’m totally fascinated by this whole process so far.

The cast is absolutely fantastic:

Don Anchise (Il Podestà) Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke
Sandrina (La Marchesa Violante) Christiane Karg
Arminda Nicole Heaston
Count Belfiore Joel Prieto
Ramiro Rachel Frenkel
Serpetta Joélle Harvey
Nardo (Roberto) Gyula Orendt

When music and drama have this kind of combination I feel like in “opera heaven” 😉 !!

Hope you guys enjoy the final result !
Big hugs,
Joel
