That's very good news about Heppner - he still seemed to be going through vocal hell in Peter Grimes, as well as in his Covent Garden Tristan. "Occasionally sounded tight or wobbly" is tremendous progress! It shows things can get better. I'm pretty jealous of you. I've still never seen a Konwitschny production live, but I enjoyed his schoolroom Lohengrin on DVD. I'd like to have seen the Meistersinger that comes to a halt in the 3rd Act so they can discuss German history...

According to her biography Jane Dutton was Santuzza in the Richard Jones Cavalleria Rusticana (ENO as well). Very good, as far as I can remember, but I have no idea what that means for Kundry. I saw Theorin in that Bayreuth Tristan too and was also disappointed but I always point to her Brunnhilde in Siegfried, standing in for Lisa Gasteen at Covent Garden, which was thrilling. But then again, Kundry is very different. I'm still pretty excited about it.
