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.
Kristine Opolais may not pass so easily for an oriental 15 year old, but her Cio-Cio San deftly avoids Titipu stereotypes.
Semyon Bychkov continued to develop his noble synergy with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in exemplary Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, although Kristine Opolais made for a tepid debut.
Kristine Opolais joins the Boston Symphony Orchestra for Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky in its season-closing concert.
Anthony Minghella's Madama Butterfly is still one of the best productions running at the Met at the moment, and Kristine Opolais was the dramatic star of the evening.
