In an aria finale, Amina expresses her joy: Of course stories about complications in the lives of simple people are as popular today as they were in the Romantic period, although, perhaps, not in opera, and then more in terms of Porgy and Bess, Wozzeck and Marie, Tony and Maria, or George and Lennie, rather than Swiss villagers in their tidy peasant costumes.
Then Amina comes out of the mill with her foster-mother, Teresa. The opera concludes with a joyful chorus anticipating the nuptials which were to have occurred at the beginning. December Flrez meistert Hhenflge genauso mhelos wie die kniffligen Verzierungen und endlosen Legatobgen. Un style impeccable, un aigu flamboyant, un timbre de velours et un charme vocal incomparable: June Whenever Juan Diego Flrez looses his soaring high notes, he is not merely a joy to hear, he is expressing real emotions.
Lisa figures out that Rodolfo is the son of the local count. There was just enough preening in it and just enough condescension to put me on my guard.
But then he is struck by her obvious innocence and refrains: She is the owner of the mill and had adopted Amina many years before. It tells the story of simple villagers, Amina and Elvino, who are about to get married. Their life conveniently revolves around the local inn, where the celebrations are to take place.
Elvino is not convinced and takes back the ring, though he is unable to tear her image from his heart: Singers and conductors, balancing and merging the styles of Callas and Sutherland, know how to bring out the dramatic and emotive core of the pretty melodies and the impressive ornament.
She is flattered when he begins a flirtation with her, but runs out at the sound of people approaching, dropping her handkerchief which the Count picks up. As Amina continues her sleepwalk, Rodolfo hears the sound of people approaching and, with no other way out, he climbs out of the window.
Its sheer beauty stands alone. For tourists in Switzerland the village inn has long been replaced by slick, highly professionalized hotels.
Man erlebt vokal wie darstellerisch einen charmanten jungen Mann und nicht einen angestrengten Opernsnger. Natalie Dessay is tossed in the air as she hits one final spectacular high note.
January Decca is a Universal Music Company. Michele Pertusi gibt sich als Rodolfo seris, zeigt sich aber Liebesabenteuern keineswegs abgeneigt. Flrez has learned to contain some of the big shine in his voice and when it needs to be mellow it is, indeed, mellow but the big climaxes gleam like silver.
The music and individual performances are exceptional. Lisa points out that it is getting late and he will not reach it before dark and she offers him lodging at her inn. She advises him that the village is preparing a formal welcome; meanwhile she wishes be the first to pay her respects.
June As Elvino, Juan Diego Flrez is richer in tone than in recent performances and you feel the violence ignited by his sexual jealousy. Natalie Dessay is more a Callas than a Sutherland, if of a more cheerful, extraverted sort.Mar 21, · Directed by Barbara Willis Sweete.
