LSO, LPO and Philharmonia announce 2008-09 seasons; Natalie Dessay's Italian Opera Arias CD; Kate Royal in The Magic Flute at the ROH

It's been a bumper week for orchestral news in London. The LSO, LPO and Philharmonia have all announced their 2008-09 seasons, each of which includes at least one major themed series.

In addition, we've reviewed DVDs of Eugene Onegin with Renee Fleming and Das Rheingold with Karajan; CDs of The Bach Dynasty and Natalie Dessay in Italian Opera Arias; and Kate Royal and Christopher Maltman in Die Zauberflote at Covent Garden.

We've also interviewed soprano Anna Christy and tenor Barry Banks about ENO's first-ever production of Lucia di Lammermoor, which opens next Saturday.
