Angel Blue and Speranza Scappucci Elevate the Met’s Somewhat Dated ‘La Rondine’

 [Tetelman's]  voice is consequential but still limber … his presence is so inviting that I missed him whenever he went offstage.

This revival is notable for containing four debut performances, three of whom were in the leading quartet: Jonathan Tetelmen as Ruggero, Emily Pogorelc as Lisette, and Bekhzod Davronov as Prunier. The main cast skewed youthful, in a refreshing change of pace, and that energy was complimented by a parental vibe from the audience. Many arms held bouquets, ready to toss to the singers at the curtain call. All three did well.

The Met Goes Three for Three with Sierra and Bernheim’s Unforgettable ‘Roméo et Juliette’

(Gounod’s) ravishing music for the lovers never fails to move modern audiences, especially when it’s performed with such passionate musicality as it was last week by Sierra and Bernheim.

The Metropolitan Opera scored another resounding success with a rapturous Roméo et Juliette starring the near-ideal pairing of Nadine Sierra and Benjamin Bernheim … [Bernheim’s] hypnotically besotted “Ah, Lève-toi, soleil” sung to Juliette’s window gave notice that his was no fleeting infatuation … [Sierra’s] voice, throbbing with resolve, effortlessly filled the huge opera house … the pair’s four duets served up such intimate enchantment that people will be talking about them for years.
