Kasarova Schedule

For my fellow fans of the Bulgarian - Swiss operatic mezzo-soprano Vesselina Kasarova, here is the updated unofficial performance schedule for our favorite opera singer as compiled from internet searches. If you notice any mistake or know of schedule change, please don't hesitate to let me (and others) know!

Bonjour Yvette!

Avec plaisir, mon amie. :o) I am rather envious of the Cologuese, too. I hope you'll get to see her live in performance again soon. I'm hoping that the Verdi Requiem on September 28, at least, will be web-broadcast. Fingers and toes crossed! ;o)

Dear Smorgy, Back from Köln and the amazing Samson et Dalila. The news is that Frau Kasarova will sing in Paris in December, but as she was speaking with close friends awaiting her at the stagedoor I felt intruding and did not ask for more details of course. ( she used the German word for recital I think? ). Must blog now about this night at the musical Dom, what a night....
