L'ITALIANA IN ALGERI
(65. Aufführung in dieser Inszenierung)

Musikalische Leitung: Maurizio Benini
nach einer
Inszenierung von: Jean-Pierre Ponnelle
Chorleitung: Ernst Dunshirn


Isabella: Agnes Baltsa


Beginn: 19.30

A wonderful Italiana in Wiener Staatsoper with Agnes Baltsa as the best Isabella, Juan Diego Florez wonderful as Lindoro, and Kristinn Sigmundsson was good as Mustafa. Bori Keszei as Elvira was not the best Elvira I have seen and Michaela Selinger as Zulma was also just good enough. Alfred Sramek was as usual wonderful as Taddeo. Italiana in Algeri is a wonderful production. But personally I think that with someone like Ferruccio Furlanetto or Ruggero Raimondi as Mustafa it would have been even better. Florez was the most applauded person with Agnes Baltsa as the second most applauded. Personally I could not find any error in Agnes Baltsa's singing, she sang just most wonderfully. Perfection.
