Opera: Two Early Works in Capable Young Hands, by Joan Reinthaler
Elsewhere: Esa-Pekka Salonen said his final goodbyes as music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The conductor Donato Cabrera made an unexpected debut with the San Francisco Symphony when two other conductors got sick. William Christie and Les Arts Florissants brought Monteverdi's "Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria" to Madrid's Teatro Real, in a staging by Pier Luigi Pizzi, for what was allegedly the opera's first performance in Spain, ever. (The Classical Beat does not offer Spanish-to-English translations, but the reviews were very positive.)
