The Teatro Colon ins Buenos Aires is muscling in on La Scala’s triumphant opening night with Andrea Chénier by streaming the same opera – live and free – this weekend.

José Cura sings the title role.

Streaming link here.

    Regardless, it’s a sorry pitchfest either way with Cura in BA or Nebs in Milano.

  • Patrick says:

    Bravo, Teatro Colon! A beautiful house and a great company (and as much drama behind the scenes as on-stage. Ah, Buenos Aires!)

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    Cura? ugh ugh ugh. Once saw him try to sing and conduct at the same time…..with his back to the orchestra.

  • Stallsleft says:

    Worth tuning in to the broadcast from BA to hear Guadalupe Barrientos’ Bersi, if not JC himself, who sang thoughtfully and well. The production is risible. I attended the opening night in on 5 December.
