Hero or villain? Don Giovanni at the Wiener Staatsoper

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.

Defiant Domingo's Macbeth wins them over at the Staatsoper

Plácido Domingo (Macbeth) © Michael Pöhn | Wiener Staatsoper GmbH
At 78, Domingo rages against the ravages of time, and – certainly in this production – shows the next generation a thing or two about stagecraft.

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.

Mistrust, rage and colonialism: Otello at the Staatsoper

Aleksandrs Antonenko (Otello) © Wiener Staatsoper GmbH | Michael Pöhn

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.

Evelyn Herlitzius (Nurse), Camilla Nylund (Empress), Nina Stemme (Dyer's wife) © Wiener Staatsoper | Michael Pohn
The outstanding trio of Nylund, Stemme and Herlitzius soars above a Vienna State Opera Orchestra in thunderous form, led by Christian Thielemann to celebrate the Staatsoper's 150th birthday in style.

Il barbiere di Siviglia: Flórez triumphs as Almaviva in Vienna

Juan Diego Flórez (Count Almaviva) © Wiener Staatsoper | Michael Pöhn
A solid cast led by Juan Diego Flórez revives Günther Rennert’s production, which still amuses after more than 400 performances.
