Bear Notes: Partenope on the Radio

Another chance to hear Theater an der Wien's production of Partenope - apparently it was on the radio last weekend which I foolishly missed. Anyway I have been given a reprieve and I can get to hear it online at Radio 4 in the Netherlands at 7 p.m tomorrow - March 7th. The cast is dazzling with Christine Schäfer as Partenope, the great countertenor David Daniels as Arsace, Kurt Streit as Emilio and Patricia Bardon reprising her role of Rosmira. What is more it is conducted by Christophe Rousset - more joy for the baroque lover. Theater An der Wien have released this promotion video to give us all a taste of the production. Enjoy!
