Dark sisters

The very brunette leading ladies of Adriana Lecouvreur, Anita Rachvelishvili and Angela Gheorghiu, flank the practically strawberry blond by comparison Jonas Kaufmann during bows last night after Opera Orchestra of New York’s season opener.

    I heard that same person booing behind me after the first clip posted, so I may have been sitting near this recorder in the balcony. A bunch of us turned around in disbelief to try to see who this creature was.

      well, to be fair, he is singing in a really affected manner in this clip. nothing unusual for him, but he’s laying it on thick here and it seems with JK now you have to put up with the throaty/swallowed/ingolata sound if you want to have the glorious high notes. booing is a bit much IMO but it’s definitely not flawless singing.

      • Clita del Toro says:

        Well, not as flawless as Giordani! ;=)

        • bassoprofundo says:

          oy… don’t make me choose. one is whiny and has an unpleasant voice with no bottom register, the other sings with a strangulated and swallowed sound.

          and yet both are adored! shocker.

        Your “knowledge” is getting in the way of understanding.
