L’elisir d’amore, Royal Opera House, London, review: It remains a winning formula
Laurent Pelly’s glorious take on Donizetti’s masterpiece is now back in its fourth revival, and it remains a winning formula, with Pelly’s transposition of the plot – an ingenious send-up of the love-potion idea in Tristan and Iseult – to the Fifties Italy of Fellini’s Amarcord. The joy is in the detail, with the chorus turned into a believably real community, and little dashes of co...

Giant haystacks: Pelly's sunny L'elisir d'amore romps back to Covent Garden
This was meant to be Pretty Yende's night. The South African soprano, praised for her bel canto feats at houses like The Met and Paris, was making her much-anticipated Royal Opera debut as Adina, the beautiful landowner playing hard-to-get in Donizetti's joyous comedy, L'elisir d'amore. In the end, it was the Armenian tenor singing country bumpkin Nemorino who stole hearts. Liparit A...

‘Pandolfe [was] sung by bass-baritone Derek Welton, another fine artist from down under in his own American debut’

Seen and Heard International
‘As Cendrillon’s wife-weary father, Derek Welton was impressive. His resonant bass-baritone supported the well-shaped lines with ease. The confidence Welton gave to the high passages stood out, along with this clarity in his lower register. In Act III, Welton approached the scene with Cendrillon with the intimacy some would associate with Verdi’s famous father-daughter exchanges.’...

‘Bass-baritone Derek Welton, making his American operatic debut as Cinderella’s browbeaten father, Pandolfe, proved a fitting counterpart to Madame, his resonant instrument reflecting his character’s warmth.’

Cenerentola Brightens the Season at LA Opera
’Tis the season when opera companies turn to family friendly programming, light of mood, rich in melodies and, if possible, a story line that captures the festive atmosphere of the holidays — children welcome. In that tradition, Los Angeles Opera unveiled a delightfully buoyant production of Gioachino Rossini’s La Cenerentola Saturday at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, which attracte...

Review: LA Opera stages an incongruous albeit successful ‘La Cenerentola’
“La Cenerentola” is the second-most often performed Rossini opera, with “The Barber Of Seville” being a runaway No. 1. At the Los Angeles Opera, it’s made regular reappearances in 13-year intervals: first, during the company’s second season back in 1987, with Frederica Von Stade as the heroine and Neville Marriner in the pit. It returned with a comic, modern-dress garb rendition in ...

Ensemblemitglied Josh Lovell wird von Einsatz zu Einsatz besser, sein heller, jugendlich frischer Tenor gewinnt an Durchschlagskraft und Farbigkeit. Als Arturo begegnet er den Hauptakteuren auf Augenhöhe und ist ein nicht unsympathischer, von Enrico auserwählter Bräutigam Lucias.
