Dem Anina Yatay Salas säin Numm besteet nëmmen aus Palindromer, déi ee ka vu vir a vun hanne liesen. Leider maache seng Schoulkollegen dofir awer och oft de Geck mat him. Enges Daags wiert d’Anina sech a streit an der Schoul mam Ysel. D’Directrice erwëscht se dobäi a gëtt hinnen eng ganz ongewéinlech Strof.

Dësen Animatiounsfilm vermëttelt en aussergewéinlechen Abléck an d‘Gedanken an d‘Dreem vun engem klenge Meedchen.

In one extraordinary new work, lovers of Baroque opera have it all: the world's best singers, glorious music of the Baroque masters, and a story drawn from Shakespeare. In The Enchanted Island, the lovers from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream are shipwrecked on his other-wordly island of The Tempest. Inspired by the musical pastiches and masques of the 18th century, the work showcases arias and ensembles by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, and others, and a new libretto devised and written by Jeremy Sams. Eminent conductor William Christie leads an all-star cast with David Daniels (Prospero) and Joyce DiDonato (Sycorax) as the formidable foes, Plácido Domingo as Neptune, Danielle de Niese as Ariel, and Luca Pisaroni as Caliban. Lisette Oropesa and Anthony Roth Costanzo play Miranda and Ferdinand. The dazzling production is directed and designed by Phleim McDermott and Julian Courch (Satyagraha and the Met's 125 anniversary gala).

This early Puccini masterpiece makes a welcome return to Covent Garden after an absence of over 20 years, in a new production by Jonathan Kent under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano. The exciting Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role. A consummate Puccini soprano, Opolais caused a sensation as Madama Butterfly in 2011, and with Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine, we will see a very different side of her character. She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover, Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut. This is a much anticipated new production, and Kent’s vision of a young girl who faces temptation in the big city will surely resonate with today’s audience.
