    Great; that means I’ll get to see “Frau ohne Schatten” in May when I’m there. Can’t wait.

    So viele interessante Vorstellungen in diesem Jahr! Ich bin sehr glücklich, so viele interessante Solisten zu hören. Ein Höhepunkt (ich glaube) ist Lianna Haroutounians Cio-Cio-San. Ein weiser Freund hat mir gesagt, dass sie die beste Butterfly von unserer Epoche ist! Die russische Sängern (und Furlanetto) von Onegin mich auch interessieren!
