Review of Alcina

My review of the concert performance of Alcina at the Barbican on Saturday is here, the review is on the OperaToday website (http://www.operatoday.com)

  1. Hiya,
    Thanks for reviewing the show! :o) I'm hugely jealous you got to experience it live. I'd fly anywhere in the USA to hear Marc Minkowski and his Les musiciens du Louvre do baroque opera, but the other side of the Atlantic is a bit far away. :o(

    I was also delighted to read that you and a few others also enjoy baroque opera played with dramatic conviction rather than in the standard 'stylistically correct to the point of sterilization' manner. :o) I think those opera-going folks in the 1700's were as fun-loving as we are (they might even like good rock and roll music if they could ever listen to it), so I'm highly skeptical of the popular notion that music lovers back then valued clean singing better than we do today.

    Anyhow, if you could still edit the Opera Today review, Kasarova only has one ess in her last name. A minor and insignificant glitch if you can't anyhow!

    Thanks again and hope your December is going well!

    Smorg :o)
