A-HA!! So THAT was the secret project to which Joyce referred in her blog a few months ago! It didn't take much time for it to be "published" (unlike the new "Alcina" which isn't coming out until early 2009). Now I am on tenterhooks waiting for more details of her "second tour" and her return to the Lyric - she alludes to these on her Website. What a tease she is!!!

Do you think this is the secret project? I thought it was the new recording of Vivaldi's opera "Ercole sul Termodonte", with Diana Damrau, Patrizia Ciofi, David Daniels, Philippe Jaroussky, Rolando Villazon and Francesco Meli, with
Europa Galante and Fabio Biondi conducting, still in progress and slated for release in 2010...

Yum! Thanks for sharing that tidbit…

That could have been it. Now that I think on it, she had a "secret" project and also one which took only a day or two (she bopped over to Florence or somewhere), which could be the Monteverdi. Both of these projects also involve Ciofi, whom she mentions. The woman's schedule is incredible. I get tired just reading her blog!! But I find it interesting how she is going "backward" from Rossini, investigating more of the mezzo repertoire. I wonder when she will discover Gluck.
