The Netherlands' Nationale Reisopera has postponed the revival of its production of Florian Leopold Gassmann's L'Opera Seria, which was to have traveled throughout Holland in November and December of 2012.
This revival was scheduled to feature many members of the original 2005 cast, including Sally Silver as Stonatrilla, Johanette Zomer as Smorfiosa, Henrike Jacob as Porporina, Steven Tharp as Sospiro and Maarten Koningsberger as Derlirio. The production was directed by Laurence Dale and featured the Combattimento Consort under the direction of Jan Willem de Vriend, who was scheduled to conduct the revival as well.
The Reisopera has not announced new dates for the revival. The postponement was the direct result of a 60% cut in the Reisopera's government subsidy due to austerity measures similar to those which have affected arts organizations throughout Europe.
