Buxton Festival 2010

Besides the three main works in the Buxton programme (see this post), Luisa Miller (Verdi), The Barber of Baghdad (Cornelius) and Idomeneo (Mozart/R. Strauss), they will as usual be playing host to visiting opera companies.

The Opera Group will be reviving their production of George Benjamin's Into the Little Hill, which also comes to Covent Garden again. Psaphha will be doing Bernstein's magical little opera Trouble in Tahiti and the Opera Theatre Company will be bringing their production of Alcina. The Classical Opera Company will be performing Mozart's incomplete Singspiel Zaide, though plans for them to bring Arne's Artaxerxes (seen at Covent Garden's Linbury Theatre) seem to have foundered.

    Dear Mr. Hugill, we can't seem to find a web address for the Buxton Festival to inform them of a lengthy typo error in the opera program as it appears on the Internet, para 3 of the Ideomeneo write-up has several lines repeated from para 1, King of Crete...etc. In case you can pass it on. Regards, Luisa and Rod Wright, Buxton Opera Lovers
