After five months of being on hiatus in my online reviewing, I am officially back. What better way to herald my return to vlog-style opera reviewing than with my review of the Met’s radio stream of Arrigo Boito’s Mefistofele starring the virile Christian van Horn, the charming Michael Fabiano, the mighty Angela Meade, and the fine Jennifer Check. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Angela Meade’s mighty Queen Semiramide, Elizabeth DeShong’s sterling Arsace, Javier Camarena’s dashing Idreno, and Ildar Abdrazakov’s handsome Assur lead a cast of all-star bel canto singers. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Let us all celebrate an extraordinary Winter Solstice with two grand divas who portray two iconic priestesses, one whose voice soars like an eagle in the form of Angela Meade’s Norma and the other whose voice has the steely plushness and fiery blaze of a meteor in the form of Jamie Barton’s Adalgisa. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
