Project Hamlet

Tamino's first aria, from Cologne Opera's 2014-15 production of Mozart's "Magic Flute". 


We got to attend this production in December 2014 as part of our office Christmas Party -- I loved every minute, and was consequently delighted to learn that Mr. Roschkowski wouldn't merely be starring in one but even two productions in Bonn this season, Berlioz's "Benvenuto Cellini" and the reprise of "Rusalka", a production that I already loved when it first opened in Bonn in 2011, but which I loved even better this time around.
