Critiques

fresh voice on this occasion, Domingo’s inimitable tone remains luxuriant, ringing and absolutely steady, and with his phrasing still amazingly generous - while serving the score interpretively with his customary style and acumen. However, Domingo remains Domingo (and despite his early baritone origins) now simply echoes the tenor we have known (and admired) for decades - but in a lower tessitura. A remarkable achievement - not only considering this legend’s longevity, but also in light of the undoubted pressure of recent events. Yet, despite all, not a Verdi baritone. In the title role Nino Machaidze oozes charm and - coupled with an appealingly natural demeanour - presented a winning and credible Luisa. Naturally, her soprano has gained in substance over the years and was initially a touch sluggish in agility, with some sustained notes also hinting at a slight beat in the vibrato. However, as the evening progressed her instrument gained in plasticity to fully score in the grand opportunities of Act 3. Yulia Matochkina’s imposing Frederica brought the ideal mélange of metal and velvet in her timbre, authentically Italianate in style, and in fact slightly reminiscent of the young Fiorenza Cossotto - which is a compliment indeed. Roberto Tagliavini’s slender - but potent - bass-baritone rang true as Walter, while John Relyea contrasted well with his rather guttural boom as the unsavoury Wurm. Pleasing support in Oleg Zalytskiy’s Peasant, and Cecilia Molinari’s engaging and well-schooled Laura. The true star of the evening was unquestionably Piotr Beczala - as indeed the final reception in the house confirmed. This was one of those rare performances in which the ideal combination of assets catalyzed to steal the show in a passionate reading, technically immaculate, and at exactly the right point in vocal and artistic maturity to guarantee a triumph. A fine contribution by the Konzertvereinigung Wiener Staatsoper complimented the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg under the baton of James Conlan, in his rather belated - but well received - debut at the Salzburg Festival.

The opera, whose libretto was strongly criticized from the outset, is today best known for a few pieces often practiced in recital and which require first-rate singers. And the Salzburg Festival made no mistake about it by inviting four great names in opera singing, Aida Garifullina, Javier Camarena, Plácido Domingo and Stanislav Trofimov , and by organizing a twist: Placido Domingo , who needs no introduction and whose career counts more than 3900 performances, took a role singing for the first time the role of Zurga on stage, his 150th role! Hats off!.The lovely Aida Garifullina wears a white bustier dress with spring motifs of white and pink flowers open on tender green foliage, extremely becoming, but probably too luxurious for the role of a veiled priestess. The Russian singer seduces with the agility of her vocalizations, a pure, fluid and crystalline voice, more dazzling however by her impressive technique than by the emotional quality of the interpretation. Ricardo Minasi conducted the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra , of which he is principal conductor, and the Vienna Philharmonia Choir prepared by Walter Zeh . The complicity with the orchestra is obvious. We admire the concern for precision and detail from the introduction sung with verve and enthusiasm. Here again the technique sometimes seems preferred to the color and the exotic warmth of the evocation. Loud applause will greet an evening marked above all by an impressive tenor and by the cult of Plácido Domingo , whose grateful public no doubt also wanted to salute his immense career.
