Just in: Joyce DiDonato to sing at Bayreuth

The alternative baroque festival has just laid out its summer offerings.

Top highight: Diva Joyce singing Monteverdi, Händel, Gluck, Hasse, Cesti and Dowland.

Not loud enough, we guess, to disturb the fools on the Green Hill.

    Almost gave me a heart attack with that headline…

    Guess anyone who enjoys Wagner and Gesamtkunstwerk is labelled a ‘fool’ on this site, and yet Norman Lebrecht constantly attempts to push lesser composers onto the rest of us.

    Not loud enough, we guess, to disturb the belchers on the Green Hill (!) – By the way, one doesn’t need to shout on the stage of the Green Hill – at least, neither Nilsson or Windgassen had to 😉

  • Larry L. Lash / Vienna, Austria says:

    Don’t jump the gun: Bayreuth 2020 ends on 30 August (a few days before DiDonato’s recital) with Beethoven XI. and the singers have not yet been announced…

  • Jerome Hoberman says:

    A headline illustrating the importance of prepositions in English

  • Has-been says:

    ‘fools on the green hill’ is gratuitous and beneath any level of thoughtful comment.
