  • Piotr Beczala speaks German fluently, and has sung Belmonte, Tamino, Sou Chong, and other roles in German. Anna is reportedly working on her German, in preparation for Elsa.

    • “Working on her German” – the funny thing is that years ago she was granted citizenship of a country whose only official language (apart from some regional miniority languages of indeed minor importance) is indeed German.

  • If Anna and Piotr are “ideal”, then what of Anna and Alagna (who’s scheduled to sing Lohengrin at Bayreuth in 2018)? Can’t wait to see what the not-always-diplomatic Thielemann will say about that…
