Proms 2013

Proms 2013
The program for 2013 was announced yesterday. I devoured it because I consider it's fantastic to gather so many orchestras, soloists and conductors in one place for almost two months. If I were in London, I think I'd go every day. So, lots of Wagner (the Ring in concert conducted by Barenboim with Nina Stemme in three out of four operas... sort of 1 Wagner every 2 days... sort of 750 minutes of Wagner...), drops of Verdi (thanks to Sir Tony), lots of Britten, baroque, recitals, modern music, film music, there's something for each taste. The festivities end with Joyce di Donato reigning over the Last Night of the Proms at Royal Albert Hall and Joseph Calleja conquering Hyde Park during the Proms in the Park, both on September 7.
Take a cup of coffee (a big one) and start making plans for Proms 2013.
Have a great weekend!
