UK soprano has 3 days to learn Die Tote StadtNews
The British soprano Rachael Nicholls is busy studying the fabulous dual role of Marie/Marietta in Korngold’s opera after the Israeli Noa Danon dropped out at short notice from Longborough Opera’s new production.
Rachael last appeared at Longborough as Brünnhilde in the acclaimed 2013 Ring cycle. Longborough music director Anthony Negus said: ‘I am proud to welcome Rachel back to Longborough. She is a wonderful collaborative colleague who will bring her unique artistry to finding the soul of the fascinating double role of Marie/Marietta in Korngold’s youthful masterpiece.’
The show runs from June 21 to 27, conducted by Justin Brown.
