In other competition news…
The semi-final of the Concours Reine Elisabeth de chant can be watched today starting 9AM EST here . Among the semi-finalists, Meghan Lindsay, who sang a winning Agathe in Opera Atelier’s Der Freischuetz a couple of seasons ago, and will sing Alcina in the OA’s coming season.
A singer that I discovered thanks to the competition: Heather Flemming, contralto. I didn’t think Canada bothered producing those anymore, so it was a pleasant surprise. She did not make it to the semi-finals, unfortunately.
Full list of the competitors and who’s singing when can be consulted here.
