A bad day to break a new season

Bavarian State Opera announced 20/21 this morning, the last under General Manager Nikolaus Bachler and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko.

There are eight new productions including a Tristan und Isolde in June 21 with Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros making role debuts.

In normal tumes, this would engender infinite online chatter. Today – not much.

  • I liked getting this news this morn and shared it with my fellow Kaufmannites. I think your headline meant BAD for BSO drumming up excitement, rather than inappropriate. The hope to catch a full Tristan from Kaufmann next year will alleviate some of the pain of missing what will likely be cancelled next month (his Boston/NY Act III).

    • Everyone realises that we are just at the beginning of this thing, but are you seriously suggesting that the world will stay on lockdown forever?
      Sooner or later, when the initial panic has passed, we will have to find a way of resuming normal life.

      • In four months time we will likely start events again. Unlikely to be sooner, and it may take a bit longer.
