No cancellation nor sickness from Die Baltsa, but another Jenufa than Ricarda Merbeth the Irish soprano Sinéad Mulhern was singing. So it was not only her role debut in Vienna but her first time in Wiener Staatsoper. Not her first time singing Jenufa, naturally.

What a debut it was!! The Vienna audience loved her Jenufa. A wonderful voice and excellent actress. For me it was confusing in the beginning a new Alte Buryja (Janina Baechle) and John Dickie as Stewa Buryja. Torsten Kerl and Angela Denoke was singing Stewa and Jenufa last time I saw JENUFA. Both very blond and Torsten Kerl is a big man. JOHN DICKIE and SINEAD MULHERN were much darker. So in the beginning I did not even recognize the main players. Jorma Silvasti was singing Laca as before but he seemed to be bigger and more threatening this time. Janina Baechle was a more sympatic widow Buryja. This was the first JENUFA in this season.

I waited at the stage door to see Agnes Baltsa but I had also a train to catch. So I went home earlier than I would normally do.
