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.
My first opera night at the Semperoper Dresden had a kick start with Achim Freyer’s weird, wacky, yet colorful production of Mozart’s final opera, Die Zauberflöte or The Magic Flute for English-speakers. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
