Ludovic Tézier (Don Giovanni) and Andrea Carroll (Zerlina) © Michael Pöhn | Wiener Staatsoper GmbH
The Don is dark and light, the production somewhere in between, with strong singing and musical direction but stodgy staging.

A spirited Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Wiener Staatsoper

Lawrence Zazzo (Oberon) and Erin Morley (Tytania) © Michael Pöhn | Wiener Staatsoper GmbH
Countertenor Lawrence Zazzo is more than at home in the role of Oberon, and possesses a vocal quality ideal for the scheming king of the fairies, simultaneously eerie and seductive.

Flórez makes a role debut in a stylish production of Manon in Vienna

Nino Machaidze (Manon Lescaut) and Juan Diego Flórez (Chevalier Des Grieux) © Wiener Staatsoper GmbH | Michael Pöhn
Juan Diego Flórez was impressive in his first portrayal of a lovesick soldier/priest in Manon, with Nino Machaidze's accomplished heroine. Andrei Serban's modern and thoughtful production was still fresh and arresting.
