Opening Night: Intermission Post

The Met’s Figaro is going swimmingly. James Levine has maintained his signature adherence to the score. The orchestra playing is clean and clear. Ildar Abdrazakov is a wonderfully virile Figaro and Marlis Petersen’s playful voice perfectly pairs with Abdrazakov’s. Peter Mattei is a consistent pleasure to hear as the Count, and Amanda Majeski’s “Porgi Amor”, though showing some minimal nerves, was beautifully executed and her voice is especially distinctive as Mozart singers go. The act was capped off with a wonderful ensemble.

Can’t wait to hear the rest!
