Francesco Demuro. An Italian tenor known for his dashingly sweet looks steps up to the plate to take on the challenging role of Lord Arturo Talbo. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
It was my first opera night at Paris’s Opéra Bastille and what better way to kick this off than with Bellini’s final opera directed by someone who is very famous for dark, gothic productions. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Florian Sempey rises to the challenge to take on the role of Hamlet the Prince of Denmark, whose quest to avenge his father’s murder unravels in this concert version of Ambroise Thomas’s opera of the same name. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Ah, La Grande Madama Diana Damrau. Fresh from her role debut as Maria Stuarda in Zürich, she brought this iconic queen to Berlin accompanied by some equally wonderful singing actors. I know I should have mentioned this in the review, but I’ll say it anyway. I am anticipating the day she adds Anna Bolena and especially the Roberto Devereux Elisabetta I, as she will definitely knock these roles right out of the park. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Diana Damrau, Matthew Polenzani, Mariusz Kwiecien and Nicolas Testè! With a scintillating cast of singers like this, this was a very worthwhile evening. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well. P.S. I thought Patricia Racette was a decent host as she had enough charisma and charm to liven things up. Also, I do apologize for some of the background noise in this review as my flatmate had guests even though he was aware I was making this Vlog style review. Plus, this was made two years ago. So, I hope you enjoy this video.
