The Metropolitan Opera's new produdtion of Rusalka fails to explore a deeper complexity of the fairy tale, although a strong ensemble of singers and the superb Met Orchestra make it a musically compelling performance.
This production, directed by Tim Albery and with sets and costumes by Tobias Hoheisel, boasts more than one megastar.
Vienna State Opera's traditional production of Carmen managed to create an evening of both sumptious music and exciting drama on stage.
This performance marked Sir Mark Elder’s debut with the company and, beginning with the overture, he offered his individual interpretation of the score. He had an enormous range of dynamics and his tempi varied widely with the emotional values of each scene.
