Two years ago in January, I caught the premiere of Leos Janacek’s Vec Makropulos, known in English as The Makropulos Case, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin starring the indescribable, invigorating, and exhilarating Wagnerian soprano, Madame Evelyn Herlitzius, as the tragically eternal anti-heroine, Emilia Marty. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
A huge kudos to all of the performers and Maestro Jindra, especially Dana Buresova, Eva Urbanova, Richard Samek, Jaroslav Berzina and Yvona Skvarova, for a very enjoyable Jenufa that I caught three years ago during my Easter vacation in Prague. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Two to three years ago in my first Austrian Christmas and New Year’s break, this was a spectacular first evening at the Vienna State Opera House, with this supernatural and dramatic Janacek opera headed by one of my most favorite lyric-dramatic coloratura sopranos of all time, Laura Aikin, as the coveted role of Emilia Marty.
