I got May 27th too. Maybe we can meet there!:)
There's a cinema in my city that broadcasts from Covent Garden, but it's usually taped. I'm not sure they have La Donna del Lago on the list.

Sweet! Now I just have to get plane tickets... Btw, JDD has a solo song recital in Zurich on May 25 (http://www.opernhaus.ch/en/activity/detail/liederabend-joyce-didonato-25-05-2013/). :shuffle:
PS. There are a couple cinemas nearby that show European operas and ballets, but the schedule hasn't been released for May and after yet.

I'd love to watch that, even though I'm not a singer, but I'll be at Europeans in Zagreb next week.
Most, if not all, of the Juilliard streamed shows are posted to their YouTube channel. I don't know how long it will take for them to put up the video, but if I find it, I'll post.

In the Q&A she just mentioned figure skating :cheer2: in the context of competitive mindset and how it could apply to singing.


Can hardly wait to see/listen to her tomorrow in Maria Stuarda. I'm basically bursting with anticipation. I've stopped counting how many times I watched "Figlia impura di Bolena" on Youtube.:lol:
Have a wonderful time! She was incredible in the HD; in the house, it will be that much better :)

I managed to catch the second half of the masterclass (after the FD at Euros), but the internet connection at my hotel in Zagreb is so crappy... I would have loved to watch her interract with the students, they seemed to have so much fun! The only part that I could see without being frustrated by the continuous buffering was the final Q&A. She's so great to listen to - definitely not only at the opera!
I really hope the whole masterclass gets uploaded on YouTube.
About figure skating - I've heard her use this analogy before in interviews, and I think she's a FS fan!:) She mentioned how figure skaters take risks, that it's dangerous, but it's the only way ahead if you strive for perfection.

Oh, I had written my post before the HD broadcast... Would have given anything to see Maria Stuarda in the house, but helas, I live an ocean and half of Europe away from New York... Even watching the HD, though, was an incredible experience. It's going to stay with me for a long time.

I'm sorry, I read the dates wrong :o

I thought maybe you had traveled to NYC. The HD was fantastic. I hope they release this one on DVD.

They'd better!! Not releasing it is not an option.:D

No one will knock Carlo Maria Giulini off my opera conductor pedestal, but if there were a Barihunks site for conductors, this one would be featured:

How was it?
I knew about the radio broadcast, but it was way too early in the morning for me. My consolation will be "Drama Queens" live on Friday night in Paris (which unfortunately means no TV/live stream from 4CC for me this weekend, and no chance of seeing Tessa and Scott compete... I guess I can't have it all, can I?)

I tried to tune in, but couldn't get into it. Not sure if it was my audio or if I turned it on at the wrong moment. Or if I did not want to let go of the fantastic Fleming (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gHHICC5tXc)-Graham (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPWWS1X2yzg) recital I attended earlier in the day ;)
Btw, Drama Queens will be broadcast live from Brussels today at 20:00 (http://www.rtbf.be/musiq3/emissions_concert-du-soir?emissionId=3103&date=2013-02-04) local time (I assume 14:00 Eastern, 11:00 Pacific)

Oh, Susan Graham's famous cigarette moment!:D I read about it on Opera Swag's blog. (it wasn't actually lit, was it?!)
And I love Chants d'Auvergne! I have a collection sung by Veronique Gens.
