Julian Budden (1924-2007)
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.

È morto a Firenze Julian Budden, studioso insigne, presidente del Centro studi GIACOMO PUCCINI. Il mondo della musica piange uno dei suoi protagonisti più intensi e discreti.
