This production of Rossini’s Il Viaggio a Reims may be an acquired taste, but it was definitely a vocal extravaganza from all of the singing superstars, whose efforts cannot and should not be ignored in the slightest. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
This was yet another historical piece of work from Meyerbeer to add to my accomplishments of operas I have been longing to review for the longest time. The question remains, how well does this illustrious cast headed by Gregory Kunde, Clementine Margaine, Elena Tsallagova, Derek Welton, Noel Bouley, Andrew Dickinson, and Seth Carico stack up? Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Two superb singers, one down-to-earth actor, and a fine pianist. How great can this get?
