Gratuitous Dorothea Röschmann Post

The Earworm's blog linked to a video a day or so ago, stating: 
I am not sure who is ultimately responsible for the appearance of this video, but the entire Salzburg 1995 Le Nozze di Figaro is up on YouTube! The highlight of this for me of course is Röschmann as Susanna, but you also get the added bonus of Susan Graham as Cherubino. 
There are also the bonuses of Bryn Terfel as Figaro and Dmitri Hvorostovsky as the Count. Nikolaus Harnoncourt at the helm may be a bonus or a demerit, depending on how you feel about his handling of Mozart. 

The location that the Earworm links us to is a fun Dorothea Röschmann fansite. It's updated sporadically, but treats the reader to all things Röschmann. The blog's tagline is a wonderful quote from the diva herself:
Mozart is just the center, just the heartbeat of everything.


  1. Amen indeed!

    (Also, that photo is great. M, who runs that DR fansite, has a real talent for making screencaps.)

    1. Agreed! DR looks positively "white shirt" ready!

    2. The hat really makes the outfit, I think :)
