This has been in the making for weeks after I caught the live stream of the Bayerische Staatsoper’s production of Les Vepres Siciliennes. The question remains. How well does the star-studded cast consisting of the young American spinto soprano Rachel Willis-Sorenson, the Italian lirico-spinto Leonardo Caimi, the Romanian dramatic baritone George Petean, and the Uruguayan bass-baritone Erwin Schrott? Find out in this review, enjoy, and have a blessed Easter week.
We have a cavalcade of dramatic superstars ranging from the industry veterans of Nina Stemme, Anja Kampe, John Lundgren, Ain Anger, and Simon O’Neill respectively as Brünnhilde, Sieglinde, Wotan, Hunding, and Siegmund to continuously blossoming talents like Ekaterina Gubanova as an electrifying Fricka on the helm in this minimalistic production of Wagner’s Die Walküre. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
