Reviews
“In the role of Count Almaviva, Adam Plachetka struck a figure that was comedic while not sacrificing any of the count’s menacing qualities; this was seen earlier on after furiously emerging from his hiding spot for the trio “Cosa sento.” His firm threatening phrases meshed well with Sierra and Giuseppe Filianoti’s fearful ones, building up to a nice reveal of the hiding Cherubino. As he mused on the events of the previous two acts, the set spun around to a set dinner table, as Susanna mustered up the courage to attempt luring him to the gardens later. His anger on realizing her ploy led to a nice, fiery rendition of his aria “Hai gia vinta la causa.” As he savored getting the last laugh on his servant, Plachetka indulged in firm yet darkly-excited ornaments.”
