BWW Review: The Audience Cheers Tenor Camarena in Delightful DON PASQUALE at the MetBWW Review: The Audience Cheers Tenor Camarena in Delightful DON PASQUALE at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 23, 2016

Point/counterpoint: As if to set off its trio of Elizabethan tragedies by Donizetti, the Met is presenting two of the master's comedies. First up: DON PASQUALE, and it was a pip. (The other is L'ELISIR D'AMORE.) Too bad the Met underestimated its appeal, because it had a truncated run of only five performances. Judging by the audience reception, they could have done more--certainly if tenor Javier Camarena was at bat. (more...)

BWW Reviews: LA FAVORITE at Caramoor, Conducted by Crutchfield, Provides Another Indispensable Bel Canto RarityBWW Reviews: LA FAVORITE at Caramoor, Conducted by Crutchfield, Provides Another Indispensable Bel Canto Rarity
by Richard Sasanow - Jul 20, 2015

At a time when we're often inundated with yet another TOSCA, BOHEME or CARMEN at major opera houses, the Caramoor Festival in Katonah, NY--a couple of hours north of New York City in summer traffic--manages to bring some relief, thanks to the efforts of its Music Director Will Crutchfield. On July 11, Gaetano Donizetti's LA FAVORITE showed us that the composer of LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR, L'ELISIR D'AMORE and the Tudor Queens Trilogy, among so many others, had more than a few tricks up his sleeve.

BWW Reviews: LA DONNA DEL LAGO is Far from Pitch-Perfect at the MetBWW Reviews: LA DONNA DEL LAGO is Far from Pitch-Perfect at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 2, 2015

Maria Callas got the world used to hearing singing that was not always pitch-perfect yet still essential listening. I kept thinking about this at the Met the other night during the new production of Rossini's LA DONNA DEL LAGO with a cast headed by a couple of stars, mezzo Joyce DiDonato and tenor Juan Diego Florez, who are well known for their bel canto style.

by Richard Sasanow - Dec 2, 2014

Bartlett Sher's production of Rossini's IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA is one of the best of the Gelb years at the Met, with its sliding-doors set by Michael Yeargan and luscious costumes by Catherine Zuber. It was great when it opened with an all-star cast--headed Diana Damrau, Juan Diego Florez and Peter Mattei--and remains sturdy even when some of the casting is a little wobbly. (more...)

Pretty Yende--a name that in itself brings certain expectations as well as smiles--burst on the New York opera scene at the start of 2013, in a baptism by fire. At just 27, the South African soprano from Piet Retief, Mpumalanga memorably stepped into one of the lead roles in the revival of Rossini's LE COMTE ORY (opposite, no less, star tenor Juan Diego Florez) on short notice.
