Gypsy, La Donna del Lago, and Viva la Diva, Buxton Festival, July 2022Posted on 11 July 2022
The Buxton Festival got off to a cracking start with the musical Gypsy to lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The following nights saw operas by Rossini and Donizetti. Rossini’s La Donna del Lago was beautifully sung, but in a very odd staging. The Donizetti was an operatic farce turned into third-rate Monty Python. See my reviews in The Article.
