Welcome to the Message Forum! You can write here messages, questions, comments etc. on Karita Mattila. I will try to find answers as soon as possible.
As a painter, I am captivated by Karita. In 2 weeks you will see my first painting of Karita as Manon Lescaut.
If you can send me photos of Karita in various Operas, I'd love to do more paintings of her.
I am doing a series of paintings on the Opera, and would love to do more of this exciting star.
Unfortunately the only pictures of her in opera I have are from official pictures that were published in the internet. If they are good enough, I can try to see what kind of pics I have.
I'm responding to Jarkko's reply cause couldn't find the tab for a new post.
Karita will have a Liederabend at Aix-en-Provence music festival on 22 July with Duparc, Dvorak, Rachmaninov and Madetoja, Kuula, Melartin & Merikanto etc. More info at http://www.festival-aix.com/fr/programme-2008/detail-d-un-spectacle/index.html?tx_espectacle_pi1%5BuidSpectacle%5D=13&cHash=323489b94c
Thanks for this information! I have updated the calendar accordingly.
Thanks for the update. Here's another one: http://www.carnegiehall.org/article/box_office/events/evt_10017.html?selecteddate=04042009
I just heard Karita sing Mirage in Berlin this week. It was just incredibly fantastic! Karita was in stupendous voice. Have to go and hear Mirage in New Year next year.
Thanks for the info on the New York concert. I will soon update the page accordingly.
I was at the world premiere of Mirage in Paris in March and as you said, she was fantastic. I really liked to song itself too :-)
When you update the info for the New York concert, please also add this Edinburgh concert details:
It will surely be a magnificent occasion!
Thanks for updating the website. Please als note this concert in Santander with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in August 2008:
I noticed there was a part of the web address missing in my earlier message. Here it is in its correct form:
Please also note this Karita appearance in Stockholm in June 2008:
Karita will appear in Munich in March 5, 6 and 8, 2009 with MPO and Christian Thielemann in a Strauss programme. Please see the website for more details under March 2009 at:
Thank you very much for the information! I have updated the calendar accordingly.
According to the October issue of Opera (the British opera magazine), Karita will be singing Katya Kabanova at the Chicago Lyric Opera from November 2009 on. No exact performance dates were given.
By the way, Karita's latest Salome at the Met was the most striking triumph she has achieved so far both vocally and artistically on stage. Just awesome! Saw her live on the last performance, Sat October 16th.
Thanks for the information! I saw her as Salome on October 7th and it was truly amazing...I think this cast is better than the one in 2004. So does she actually.
