Another great review of Simon’s showtunes CD.

The Rigoletto live stream will be available as video-on-demand for 7 days after the broadcast! I assume via this link.

We have just received a list of ALL the cinemas which will broadcast Simon’s Rigoletto from Vienna with the information: “Note that after the LIVE, we’ll have a recorded distribution as well, which will be quite large as many cinemas didn’t want to participate to the LIVE because of the date.” Many thanks Sonia! Click on poster for list of participating cinemas  ….

 Staatsoper Vienna published first photos of the new production on facebook.

And another (German) interview with Simon.

Two more reviews of Simon’s showtunes CD:

Nigel Simeone writes in the magazine International Record Review, December 2014 issue: “I can’t praise this disc too highly.”
Sadly it is not available on the internet and we are only allowed to quote an extract – we would have loved to reproduce it in full.
