I was extremely pleased to have attended the HD Live performance of Rodelinda. On so many levels,
this was an extraordinary event for me. Each and every cast member rendered exquisite preformances. Mesdames Fleming and Blythe were phenomenal as were the Countertenors Iestyn Davies and Andreas Scholl. Joseph Kaiser brought a depth to the character of Grimoaldo that many overlook and his performance was fantastic. Of all the new performers that I heard in this performance, none was more welcome than the sonorous tones of basso-baritone Shenyang. For many years I enjoyed Paul Plishka and lived through performances by others that lacked depth and robust projection. Shenyang's singing was blissfull and his evil character was well portrayed. I am usually not so effusive but this was a rare and wonderful day at the opera (almost).
I would like to personally thank the Neubauer family for their gift to so many. What a legacy!
