Yesterday's L'Elisir d'Amore was a winner, for sure. I've never really cared for the slapstick
approach to this work and felt this production did the work justice. Netrebko, once again, showed what a great operatic singing actress can be. Polenzani gave the best performance I've ever seen or heard him do. The woman in back of me was near fainting when he finished Una Furtiva Lagrima.I realized I was holding my breath. It was even better than I had expected and I had heard two broadcasts (via Sirius) last week.
Then, there was Kwiecien! I'm amazed at his talent and versitility. King Roger, Giovanni, Pasquale, L'Elisir. He is absolutely amazing. I just hope the Met doesn't miss the opportunity to do a production of KING ROGER for him.
Maestre made me smile from the second he peeped from behind the curtain on his cart. I can't imaging any other artist portraying this role better than he did.
What a treat this performance was. Thank you Peter Gelb and the Met!
After having heard a rather disastrous prima broadcast of this production, and hearing the second
broadcast, where Dessay was indisosed and replaced by the wonderful soprano Hong, I wasn't really expecting a lot yesterday. Dessay apparently recovered enough to do the telecast and, aside from a couple of very minor problems, sang a very sensitive and believable Violetta. Hvorostovsky was, of course, his usual wonderful self. The real gem of the day was Matthew Polenzani, IMHO. He's always a delight to the ears and eyes.
Horrible set. And, why were all the female chorus members dressed as men? Second week in a row we've seen that. (Not ALL in Manon.) After having seen the sets for the previous Traviata, this production was a visual catastrophy. Come on, Met! Please leave the Euro-Trash productions in Europe.
