Excellent performance for this tragic Italian opera. Great seats, especially with the 50% discount. Seats in this theater are a little tight. Like flying in coach. My first real opera. This opera is shorter than a lot of other ones, so that was good for my first time. Sitting on the front of the 2nd level, we were eye level with the subtitles. My wife, whose been to operas before, really enjoyed it. Thanks, Goldstar, for the good priced tix.
One of opera’s most vivid and compelling characters, a vengeful court jester, desperately tries to protect his daughter from disaster in this heart-wrenching tragedy. The first of two world-class casts led by Music Director Nicola Luisotti stars Zeljko Lucic, “whose vocal artistry is exceptional” (The New York Times_); Aleksandra Kurzak, “a superstar in the making” (_The Guardian, London); and, as the lecherous Duke, Francesco Demuro, “whose open, bright, superbly focused tone was reminiscent of Pavarotti” . The equally impressive next cast stars Marco Vratogna, who, as the sinister Iago in Otello (2009), thrilled San Francisco Opera audiences with his “vocal power and theatrical electricity” (San Francisco Chronicle_); Albina Shagimuratova, “a phenomenon that must be heard to be believed” (Opera News); and Merola Opera Program graduate Arturo Chacon-Cruz with his “clarion tone and piercingly clean top notes” (Washington Times).
