From the Melos Opera agency:

We are happy to inform you that our wonderful stage director Vincent Boussard has finished his Korean quarantine and he started today the rehearsals of the revival of his “Manon” production with Korea National Opera, scheduled for June 25, 2020.  This will be the first fully staged opera with normal sets, costumes, normal staging, full orchestra in the pit and full chorus on stage.

    For rehearsals maybe, but impossible for performances.

  • Brian says:

    Brings a new meaning to “Un Ballo in Maschera “

  • Stephen Diviani says:

    The way things are going in London Covid-19 may burn itself out before the year ‘is quite over’ eliminating the need for a vaccine.

  • Lausitzer says:

    Ah, the hyped visors. I keep forgetting to ask someone about her opinion, but it is answer enough how quickly she switched back to surgical masks.
