KlingonOpera More than 1 year ago
My past experience with this opera has been somewhat mixed. I usually come away feeling as if it is somewhat disjointed, although I love the music very much. This particular production, however, sits very well with me. From the opening, there is a visual metaphor of the film negative, and the feeling that the operatic action is being viewed inside a camera. This interesting idea is leveraged by animations that show the characters actions and thoughts, and provide graphical referents that help tie the various loose strands of the operatic action together. As for the music, it is performed extremely well by the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro alla Scala. It is delightful, lively, and very complimentary to the vocal talents (which are exceptional) of the principal characters. Albina Shagimuratova’s Queen of the Night is just excellent, and Papageno (played by Alex Esposito) is a delight to watch. And Genia Kuhmeier’s (Pamina) performance of “Ach, ich fuhl’s” is just wonderful. I can honestly say that this is the first production of this opera that I have enjoyed from beginning to end. This was a wonderful addition to my collection, and I am glad I have this particular production. I enjoyed this production very much, and it will certainly be viewed on more than one occasion. Recommended!
