Role:GABRIELLE/ Conductor:Claude Schnitzler / Stage director: Jérôme Savary/ Frédérique Lombard/ OPERA DE MASSY – France// La jeune soprano Capucine Daumas interprétant la gantière Gabrielle dévoile une voix charmante, pleine de fraîcheur et une aisance scénique s’équilibrant à celle du personnage de l’amoureux Frick.

01/2020 - LA VIE PARISIENNE - Offenbach Role: GABRIELLE / Conductor:Claude Schnitzler / Stage director: Jérôme Savary/ Frédérique Lombard OPERA DE MASSY – France 2020 ---- Chez les femmes, c’est la soprano Capucine Daumas qui a su s’approprier le mieux la partition d’Offenbach. En effet, en plus d’incarner avec justesse la gantière Gabrielle et d’être convaincante en Veuve du colonel, la chanteuse passe aisément des aigus aux graves (« Autrefois plus d’un amant, tendre et galant », acte II), exécute avec une facilité déconcertante les vocalises de la Veuve, le tout sans se départir du côté coquin et impertinent de son personnage, allant même jusqu’à venir secouer ses gants sous le nez d’hommes du public assis au premier rang.

Role:GABRIELLE /Conductor:Claude Schnitzler / Stage director: Jérôme Savary/ Frédérique Lombard/ OPERA DE METZ – France // De Gabrielle, la gantière, Capucine Daumas possède la jeunesse et la vivacité. Le rôle est vocalement le plus exigeant de l’ouvrage, les interventions sont nombreuses et remarquées (« Je suis veuve d’un colonel »).
