Peter Schreier and András Schiff in Budapest
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.
Not at all disappointing
By Kevin Shopland [The Budapest Sun, 8 September 2005]
I WONDER if there's anyone out there who's never been disappointed in love. Probably not. Getting dumped, or never even getting started in the first place, is surely a universal experience, one we can all relate to.
Perhaps you've been disappointed in love, but I'm sure you won't be disappointed in the Schubert recital by famed German lyric tenor Peter Schreier and Hungarian pianist Andras Schiff, presented by Strem Koncert Kft and Jakobi Koncert Kft, at the Academy of Music on Monday, September 19.
