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.
Christian van Horn
Thomas Adés’s The Exterminating Angel, which was based on Luis Buñuel’s surrealist film of the same name, takes on the United States of America through New York’s Metropolitan Opera House, after its debut performances in Salzburg and London, headed by a cavalcade of veritable vocal superstars! Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Julie Taymor’s aesthetically vivid production comes to life and one lovely lyric soprano in the form of Miss Golda Schultz rises up to the challenge to take on Pamina at the Met joined by a cavalcade of musical titans. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
