I wanted to announce the exciting roles I will be singing this season, before my debut as Antonia tomorrow in Dirk Schmeding’s stunning production of Tales of Hoffmann!
This season there are a lot of shows: more Eugene Onegin, then in January, I will return to one of my favorites, Chrysothemis in Elektra, and in February I will make my debut as Desdemona in Otello. Please come and see me in #Darmstadt!
There will be various concerts as well, all of which will be posted here.

“Das Rheingold is the first opera in Richard Wagner’s tetralogy the Ring Cycle. It sets in motion the story and establishes the central theme of power versus love. It sees the Nibelung, Alberich steal the gold that is guarded by the Rhinemaidens and forge it into a ring that makes the bearer all powerful. He is only able to do so, however, by renouncing love...”

I saw it last night at Covent Garden. A wonderful and captivating production.

#opera #wagner #ringcycle

“….when Alberich mines gold in Nibelheim the tree is strapped together with a metal support as the gold pours out of it. With Erda, the Earth goddess being placed in the tree at this point, having her life force sucked out of her, this shows how the Nibelung is raping nature in his pursuit of wealth and power. Throughout the opera gold is shown in liquid form as if tree sap, a symbol of life and wholesomeness, has now been harnessed for power and greed.”

There were dozens of Black classical composers in 19th-century New Orleans, but they had few opportunities to present their compositions around the world, and that means their works have been largely forgotten — until recently. Atlas Obscura reports how OperaCréole, founded in 2011 by Black mezzo-sopranos Givonna Joseph and her daughter Aria Mason, is giving life to lost works as "an act of restorative justice."

🎭 Artist: #JR in City: #Paris Palais Garnier, Pl. de l'Opéra, France 🇨🇵 2023 - Title: Project "RETURN TO THE CAVERN - Act I" (The entrance to the cavern /"Der Eingang zur Höhle") - #Streetart #Art #Mastoart #Opera #APhotoLove #UrbanArt #OperaDeParis #Installation ➡️ until 25 Sept. 2023

Streetartwall. As part of the restoration work on the Palais Garnier, the huge scaffolding in front of the monument was covered with art by photographer and street artist "JR". It shows the old ornate walls of the Palais in black and white. These walls are interrupted in the middle by the view into a light-flooded craggy cave. End of Description.
Info: Artist JR about his Installation: 
While alienating the motif of scaffolding, the installation introduces a romantically inspired return to nature, referencing Plato's philosophical allegory of the cave, a place whose exit provides access to knowledge and understanding of the world.
Act II - In the Cave will follow in November, transforming the facade into an embroidered stage curtain. For this second installation, the gallery of the 19M invites the public to be introduced to embroidery and contribute to this collective creation from mid-September to the end of October.

@docpop Before I dropped Windows entirely in 2019, I had tested out #Firefox, but also #Opera and #Vivaldi.

I still miss #Opera #Presto browser engine. It is now over 10 years since we lost it.

Yes, it had wonderfully quirky and odd layout issues, but it was fast and lightweight. It also had some #CSS features that have never been seen in other engines, such as the multiline ellipsis. It feels so weird to me the odd -webkit-box syntax became the standard solution for that use case.

Another #browser I miss is #Safari for Windows. You could use it to debug Safari issues long after it's last release.

I'll take "vibrant and penetrating" even at the expense of "goofy," which is hardly an incursion upon the minstrelsy character of Act I. Bravi tutti at #OperaFestivalChicago.

:vivaldi_red: #Vivaldi っていつか自前のレンダリングエンジンにするって公言してるんだっけ…?
テッちゃんが #Opera 時代を振り返って、レンダリングエンジンの開発保守はめっちゃ大変で、しかも今はますますブラウザの要件は複雑化してて今ゼロから作るのは無理ゲー(だから #Chromium ベースで作った)、みたいな話をしてるのは何度か見聞きしたけど、将来的に独自のレンダリングエンジンを持つって話は(自分は)聞いたことない…

けど、Chromium 系だけになっちゃうことを良しとしてるわけじゃないだろうし、もし #Chromium そのものがあまりにも Evil な方向に進んだ時は、仕方なくフォークするという選択肢もゼロではない…のかも…(いまも毎回苦労しながら #Chromium のアップデート取り込みしてるらしいしそういう意味ではフォークするくらいの知見は溜まっているのかもしれないけど…リソースは足りなそうな印象
