Did you see The Enchanted Island last weekend in HD? It was a stunning performance which will be encored February 8th - a must see/hear if you didn't the first time around, or if you want to relive it again!
The all star, stellar cast included soprano Danielle de Niese, who was just on WNYC's Soundcheck yesterday.
de Niese shared her fashions today in the New York Times:
I was hugely happy with the performance and really relieved. There’s no margin of error with a live simulcast. After, I greeted friends and fans in a black one-shouldered tiered dress, also from Donna Karan. I paired it with black Sergio Rossi peep-toe pumps and a Marc Jacobs purse. Then it was off to Plácido Domingo’s reopened restaurant, Pampano, to celebrate the tenor’s birthday: 71.
We're also a huge fan of the new release Beauty of the Baroque - there's definitely a double entendre in that title! Especially gorgeous emotion and singing come back to back (Bach to Bach?! lol) in tracks 4 and 5: Handel's Air “Let the bright Seraphim” from Samson, Act III and Purcell's “Thy hand, Belinda – When I am laid in earth” (Dido’s Lament) from Dido and Aeneas, Act III. Run, don't walk, to get this recording!
