Text of decision in Motezuma dispute
Raphaela Papadakis seems to like ‘playing with fire’. After her acclaimed performance as the put-upon maid, Anna, in Independent Opera’s production of Šimon Voseček’s Beidermann and the Arsonists at Sadler’s Wells last year, she is currently rehearsing for the premiere this week of And London Burned, a new opera by Matt Rogers which has been commissioned by Temple Music Foundation to commemorate the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London.
Opera Today has obtained a copy of the decision by the 12th Zivilkammer des Landgerichts Düsseldorf issued in connection with the dispute concerning the performances of Vivaldi's Motezuma by Altstadtherbst Kulturfestival Düsseldorf and Opera Barga. Adobe Acrobat is required.
