What a brilliant idea.
Click on the interactive version of the above map to find opera and classical music festivals all over Europe this summer.
What a big, empty space there seems to be between Stratford and Edinburgh! I don't know how to get a link on the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung's site, so perhaps through your blog I can put out a push for the wonderful Swaledale Festival - www.swalefest.org - which kicks off tomorrow, Saturday 24 May, right in the middle of that apparent wilderness.
Artists include Royal Northern Sinfonia, the Navarra Quartet, Hugo Ticciati, Juliet Bausor and Catrin Finch, Natalie Clein, the Britten Oboe Quartet, Pellingmans' Saraband, the Summerhayes Horn Trio - and the event I'm really looking forward to, the Trusler Carroll Wass Trio with Emma Johnson. Not a bad line-up for a festival in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales. And there were quite a few visitors from Germany at last year's Festival, so maybe word is getting around in spite of the FAZ!

Looks very convenient and practical idea. But I am rather puzzled. These days, nobody studies anything, from the first page of the book. Just a click. Is it really good sign for the culture to know, these red balloon marks, which shows us,as like the bed and breakfast? If we have real interest for the music or the cultural festivities,we start from the beginning,0. It is a thrilling thing to find something what we desire to be there and join. There is no practically kind(?) information,but there is the historically clear issues that give us the idea of the search. Lets say, 100 years ago, from today,there was some one who was important for the music world was born,some where on the earth,etc.etc.. We start from there, from the beginning of the page of the music,etc's history. Then one by one , bit by bit, the clear line what we want to do,we should do comes up. We find that with our eye in our brain,not from the red balloon! Old fashion??? I do not think so. --The interest mind needs it--. How human creation has been happened? From the map where they show all the festivities's marks? Don't you want to think about it!? Or it is just nuisance for the modern world?

What happened to Buxton?

Buxton definitely still exists, I plan to be be there in two months time.
Looking further south there seems to be a lot of empty space in Italy. I could not find Pesaro or Macerata and I am sure others are missing too.
