Intimate Verdi
15 August 2013 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Opera is turning itself off from monumental performances and into the same acting demands on singers, as we have for talking stages. Nathalie Dessai is an example of it. We here follow her rehearsing La Traviata. Face expressions and moves are almost as important as song qualities.

The rehearsals nearly become a drama within the drama, although there are no high voices or choleric attitudes. Which makes this picture more touching than many of the performances you've seen in the opera houses.

Another school, another Verdi view, another way of bringing music and acting together. Are the volume strong voices out? We'll know a couple of generations from now.
