The COC is usually tighter than a duck’s arse when it comes to revealing information about future seasons so it was really quite surprising to find the leaflet illustrated below in last night’s programme. It’s not exactly a secret of course. I actually expected Falstaff to be in this season’s line up with the Verdi bicentennial and all. It’s pretty well known that Gerry Finley will star and I have a pretty good guess on the Nanetta.
It’s an interesting ploy to piggy back on the Met HD season this way.
