MOZART, W.A.: Nozze di Figaro (Le) (Teatro Real, 2009) (Blu-ray, HD) TR97001BD

This is Mediterranean Mozart, bigger in sound, more emotionally extravagant in manner…

In the best moments, all of these elements conspire in ways that allow you to enter the looking glass, so to speak, with an extra level of involvement. You’re not witnessing an opera performance but a mutation of real life. The loneliness of the Countess, so powerfully projected by Barbara Frittoli, becomes so contagious…

Vocally, Pisaroni is the most Mozartian of the cast…And his performance here shows why his Figaro is getting around: he vividly projects the character’s inner life, both vocally and theatrically, without any musical distortion. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
