SIMON KEENLYSIDE, barítono: 'ME INTERESA LA MÚSICA COMO UNA REFLEXIÓN SOBRE LA VIDA, PERO NO COMO UN MODO DE VIDA EN SÍ MISMO'

In the codalario interview Simon says that he has been offered the baritone role in Strauss's Die Liebe der Danae. He also says that Mandryka in Arabella would be a good option for him. But he doesn't imply there are any definite plans for those roles. He does say that he will probably do Boccanegra, but not for now. He will do Beckmesser in 2017, in a performance with Bryn Terfel.
