How has the crisis affected you?

One production got cancelled. For Emmanuel, two chamber music tours and concerts up to September.

What are your five favourite operas?

Pelléas et Mélisande (Debussy), Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart), Giulio Cesare in Egitto (Handel), Lakmé (Delibes), Lucia di Lammermoor (Donizetti).

What movies, television shows and books do you recommend?

Cleopatra with Elizabeth Taylor. Four hours long, perfect for the quarantine! Emmanuel is always happy to re-watch the full version of Lord of the Rings. And we both agree that the funniest movie of all time is Some Like it Hot with Marilyn Monroe. As for books, Emmanuel’s choice is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. My choice: The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte.
