So the COC will announce the upcoming season on the 23rd. I’m really hesitant to try and predict what might be in it because with the change of management and the COVID hangover old patterns don’t seem to mean much anymore. But here goes anyway.
Last year they did one new production and five revivals. I can’t see them doing that again. But then, finances being what they are I’d be surprised if they did more than two new shows. There’s a hot rumour that one of those will be Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen. It makes sense if it’s true. It hasn’t been done by the COC since 1998, it’s a relatively easy sell and there are a bunch of recent productions out there for the COC to choose from thus avoiding creating one from scratch.
