Jessica Pratt brings one of her greatest calling card roles to Paris’s Théâtre des Champs Élysées, where she is joined by one legendary conductor, one super dashing and charming lyric tenor, one dramatic baritone oozing with testosterone, one basso cantante/profondo known for his richly textured voice, one young light lyric tenor on the verge of international fame, another lyric tenor with an amazingly youthful voice, and a lovely young lyric mezzo. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well. I know I already mentioned this in the video review, but I just want to reiterate, as this serves as a sort of “petition”. To all opera houses, concert halls, and music studious, please, I am begging you, give coloratura sopranos like Jessica Pratt the opportunity to sing this opera in its original key. This happens once in a blue moon and for many an opera fan, listener, and expert this will be something worth remembering.
