I see from the latest Opera magazine, that Calixto Bieito will be directing a new production of Carmen at ENO in autumn 2012, so it seems that Sally Potter's production will be no more. In many ways this is a shame; though there was plenty wrong with it I thought that with some work, ENO could have had a promising and interesting production. I do find it troubling when productions are seen as disposable, being got rid of after one showing rather than trying to work to fix problems. And quite what Bieito will make of Carmen is anybody's guess (except of course we can get a fair idea by reading the fuss created by his recent productions elsewhere).

And in Covent Garden 2013, Placido Domingo will be singing another Doge; this time Doge Francesco in I due Foscari.
