Kristine Opolais made “a spectacular Met debut” (New York Post). As Magda, she “brought creamy sound, pliant phrasing and floating high notes” to Puccini’s La Rondine. “A lovely woman and an affectingly natural actress, she has a plush voice with a throbbing richness that lends a touch of poignancy to every phrase she sings (New York Times).
“Her voice is filled with color and shadings, and she has a charming manner on stage. She won over the audience with her warmth and lyricism” (Associated Press). “Here’s hoping Opolais, the Met’s brilliant new songbird, migrates back to New York very soon” (New York Post).
Nicolas Joël’s “gorgeous” Art Deco production co-stars Giuseppe Filianoti, who “has a melting sound and a feeling for Italianate style” (New York Times). He’s a “sensitive, heartfelt actor,” and Puccini’s melodies are “a charming fit with his velvety tenor.”
A co-production of Théâtre du Capitole, Toulouse and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
