From this month's Opera Magazine I see that Buxton are doing Saint-Saens La Princesse Jaune next year, conducted by Stephen Barlow; hurrah for a Saint-Saens revival and Henry VIII anyone?

And at Glyndebourne in 2015, Sally Matthews is due to sing Constanze, in  Die Entfuhrung with Robin Ticciati conducting.  Jonas Kaufmann will be doing his first Walther in a staged performance of Die Meistersinger at the Berlin Staatsoper, but not until 2014. Robert Lepage is due to be back at the Met in 2017 (!) for Messiaen's Saint Francois d'Assise.

Yannick Nezet-Seguin is recording all seven mature Mozart operas for DG (hurrah), with Rolando Villazon as Don Ottavio, Ferrando and Tito. Well Villazon as Tito certainly, but as Don Ottavio and Ferrando?

    I think you will find that the Don Giovanni has already been recorded live last year in Baden-Baden where Villazon gave an excellent performance.
