Toulouse 2008-09

The last season of Nicolas Joël as head of the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse is once again very well-balanced and has two majors highlights, in my opinion (full brochure there):

- Anna Caterina Antonacci will be Carmen alongside Zoran Todorovich (Don José) and Inva Mula (Micaëla). The production, a revival from 1997 (directed by Nicolas Joël), will be conducted by Daniele Callegari (April 3 to 12).

- The Faust production by Nicolas Joël that will premiere this summer in Orange will be performed in Toulouse from June 19 to 30. Orlin Anastassov should make a very fine Méphistophélès, and will share the stage with Inva Mula (Marguerite) and Giuseppe Filianoti (Faust). Emmanuel Plasson (the son of Michel Plasson who will be in Orange) will conduct.

The 2008-09 season in Toulouse will also feature Marco Armiliato (conducting Le Nozze di Figaro in Nov.), Karine Deshayes (Offenbach's La Périchole for the Christmas holidays), Stéphane Degout and Emmanuelle Haïm and her orchestra and chorus of Concert d'Astrée for Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie, and Ludovic Tézier (Jochanaan) and Thomas Moser (Herodes) in Salomé.

Oui j'attends avec impatience Carmen La Perichole et bien sûr pour la fin Faust (clin d'oeil à Nicolas Joel qui avait commencé à Toulouse avec Faust).
