Joker in the pack
28 January 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A production of these operas for the Met has to tick certain boxes, many marked entertainment. As a result, the production design, though lavish, tends to be a faithful translation of Wagner's stated intentions. Which is fine.

Into this situation comes the leading Heldentenor of the time, Siegfried Jerusalem (so much irony in a single name). He's really quite brilliant giving the audience even more than they bargained for. Great singing, a youthful joie de vivre and jokes. The relationship with Graham Clark's excellent Mime is surely not meant to be quite such a riotous double-act but the opening act trips along brilliantly.

The fun doesn't stop as he continues to play the wide-eyed bumpkin through the second to the confrontation of the third. By the time it all descends into the 'seriousness' of sexual awakening 'inverted commas' hold no fear because there's nothing to mock.

A unique standard bearer in the Met cycle. 5/10
