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!  

By the way, the White Shirt Republic's favorite diva is now on Facebook and Instagram

Vesselina Kasarova as Orphee in Gluck's Orphee et Eurydice

Frau Kasarova is more active behind the scene than on the stage these days, giving a lot of master classes all over Europe, and popping back home to direct the Stara Zagora State Opera. 

Please beware of the current COVID19 pandemic affecting concert/performance dates worldwide. Double check to see if the performance is still 'go' rather than 'postponed' or 'canceled' before making hard plans.

Thanks very much to all contributors who help alert me to performance dates and to mistakes on this (unofficial) schedule and to Frau Kasarova & Herr Roger Kaufmann for the inspiration!

Thank you so much for all the work done for us: Frau Kasarova does not come to fance but she seems to be in Cologne quite often.I will try March to travel and see her again.I miss her live performances a lot!

Smorg said...

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....

Thanks for this schedule. Ms. Kasarova has been announced to sing in Mexico City's Palacio de Bellas Artes, on Sept. 29, 2014 - of all things in Beethoven's 9th Symphony (can I wish for a solo recital instead please?). Here's more info: http://www.carlosmiguelprieto.com/artist.php?view=cal&cid=20848

Ooops! Somehow I missed your comment, Yvette. Sorry!! I think this is cue for re-visiting your wonderful post about the concert (and more, too). :o) Hope you are having a good summer. Thank you!!

Thanks very much Anonymous for the Mexico City tip! I'm editing the schedule now. :oD Here's hoping she'll come back for a solo recital soon, too. ;o)

Visiting your fantastic page, so helpful I come to realise VK sings in Basel at springtime a nice period for travelling ! It is always so rewarding to travel for Vesselina Kasarova's performances ! I will see what I can do...thank you for keeping this page fresh with all the news, you are really wonderful Smorgy, and all the best to you!

Bad news just now Lundis musicaux exist no more for economic problems . I feel really sad about VK's concert and if I was a millionaire I will invite her for this concert somwhere else in Paris ( there are so many halls ) on the same date. What could we do?

Smorg said...

Chere Yvette,
Avec plaisir, mon amie! Thanks very much for letting me know about Les Lundis Musicaux cancellations, too! :o( Sad news indeed. I do hope you will manage to catch VK in Basel, though. :o) I'm hoping her Bluebeard will be taped. There isn't enough DVD of that opera around!

Hope you are well and having a good autumn. Summer is fighting to stay in San Diego and we are still having heatwaves. The concert season has started again, though. I'm looking forward to catching Don Giovanni at the opera and a few symphony concerts in a few months. ;o)

Best wishes from sunny San Diego,

Thanks so much for all! here too it is much too warm and we are having foods in south west France whenever it rains. It is a pity these cancellations. I might not be able to travel much in 15.I would have been so happy to see her in Damnation de Faust too... well we keep going D. is in Beijing at the moment and must stay indoors because of dangerous peak of pollution... so it is quite nice to live in natural places... Bluebeard I have never seen either but followed on radio some years ago a smashing broadcast with Willard White and Beatrice Uria Monzon. Always nice to visit "chez vous" All the best !

Hello Smorgy!
Considering Frau Kasarova will sing in Paris for nearly two months with Rigoletto, how about having a recital in Paris during this period? A Handel one would be an absolute dream... Best !

Smorg said...

Hello Yvette! I wouldn't be surprise if she also schedules a concert or two during the Rigoletto run in Paris indeed. :o) It has been such a long while since she last sang there! Maybe if we keep nagging her about it via her website contact page... ;o)

Hope you are having a wonderful May!

Why does she never come to US?? I would so love to see her

Smorg said...

Hi Teri,
She used to come over to sing quite a bit in the late 90s, I think, but she didn't like being so far away from her family, especially while her son was still so young. :) Then she said in a few interviews that she didn't like singing in huge houses like we have here, even with good acoustic.

Seems she's traveling to different continents more now that he's older. Maybe she'll come over for concert tours or something if she gets good offers. Fingers and toes crossed. :)
