And now, ladies and gentlemen, Christopher Maltman (among others) in Kasper Holten‘s Juan.
I watched it twice through. I didn’t see any genitalia. I guess there isn’t much going on. Hot bod in a Daddy sort of way though.
OT: Back from Bartered Bride. Loved every minute of it. The Juilliard orchestra sounded amazing under levine (apart from a *few* flubs), and the singers delivered heartfelt, confident performances. Layla Claire stood out in particular as a voice to watch out for. The choreography was at times perplexing but the act 3 circus scene was an absolute riot….i won’t spoil it for anyone. Speaking of choreography, a pregnant natalie portman was in attendance with her baby daddy.
I was unfamiliar with this opera apart from the overture and though it is long, not a moment felt like it dragged, probably thanks to the high quality of the performances. These young singers took such joy in their singing, and I really hope the Lindemann Young Artists get more chances to do fully staged productions on a regular basis. It was really one of the most delightful nights i’ve spent at the opera this season, and i highly recommend it to anyone who can get his hands on a ticket (good luck!!). Having seen the bulk of my live opera performances in the cavernous Met, it was a revelation to be able to see and hear such a great performance in an intimate setting.
scifisci, indeed Layla Claire was simply SENSATIONAL, what a glorious voice, and she is indeed a complete package, as the musicality and phrasing were miraculous, and a great actress. But everyone else was pretty stunning, what a great bunch all around! and of course Levine drew some spectacular playing from that orchestra. What a great night indeed! Not to be missed!
Layla Claire really stood out when she was briefly featured on Kiri Te Kanawa’s ‘What makes a great soprano’ TV programme.
We might as well say it now and get it over with.
This whole “wild juan” posting or whatever these things are called has made all the lurking worth it. Thank you SO MUCH.
Ok, so when is this coming out? When do we get to see the whole thing?
Not muscular enough…
