Nicolas Courjal in Cosi & Barber

Nicolas Courjal

Our favorite French barihunk Nicolas Courjal will be appearing at Opéra d’Avignon as Don Alfonso in Mozart's "Cosi fan tutte." Unfortunately, you wouldn't know this from visiting Opéra d’Avignon online. Their website would win the award for the world's worst arts related website, since there is no cast list and no bios. Fortunately, one of our readers and a dedicated Courjal fan alerted us to the upcoming performance.

There will be an evening performance of November 12 and a matinee on November 14. He can next be seen in Paris portraying Don Basilio at the Théâtre du Châtelet, which opens on January 22. Fortunately, the Châtelet website has complete cast information.

If you can't make it to France, we recommend that you visit his website and enjoy some beautiful singing in his audio section.

[We try to keep this site positive, but our pet peeve is not listing casts. We took a U.S. company to task for it last year and they instantly put up a cast list. It is insulting to singers who toil long hours to learn their roles to be rendered invisible. It is also bad business practice, as numerous fans scour cast lists and follow their favorite singers around the world. We hope that this shameful practice ceases at Avignon.]
