mezzo soprano romeo

what do you think of the youngster’s WS (wearing) skill?

one can also listen of course . i got there via a search “mezzo soprano romeo”. The tempo is a bit slow and too regular.. but it’s just not fair that i always have VK’s Dresden’s Romeo in my head. Though perhaps a sword can make things more spontaneous :-).

    I do salute the wardrobe commitment. (Will listen later)

    while no one will ever be VK (I recently rewatched the Schwetzingen concert and was stupefied all over again), I like the tone here – paced and tentative tempo, yes, but clearly work in progress.

      (that Schwetzingen concert brings me to tear reminiscing what we have now missed)

        At least there is the video… really one of a kind. So grateful that we got to hear some years of it!

      yes to Schwetzingen, such a gem ❤ and to certain roles of hers that I would be hysterically happy if anyone can top because I would follow that mezzo everywhere 😀 but until then, the definitive Romeo and Sesto (and perhaps Orphee, as well). And to think she was only 32 in Dresden…

      • qlorgnette says:

        No one could ever top that, but others might be just as valid in their own way, is my compromise take.
        And I know I am turning into an old hag who will forever extol the virtues of VK and von Otter when everyone else will only roll their eyes anymore.

    not bad, not bad! I especially liked the ending, hehe. She needs to put even more venom into it (voice but also moves -> more cut, less flow), but she’s on the right track. Next step -> shorter hair. Interesting voice, I wonder if she’s darkening or it’s really like this. Like I said, a bit more personality would make it something to look out for but she could grow into it.

      jeah i like mote as tge end was approaching, like she was more free (but still quite cautious.) funnily enough there are quite a few hits with this search.. i will support out youngsters by sitting through them.. ashamed they start out like this now and soon got shoved into gender-stucked roles instead..

        it’s hard, they might make their choices based on any number or reasons – the roles they feel they can sing well, what they actually like, but probably mostly, what they can get.

      “next step -> shorter hair” 😀 Yes! But I already like her attitude. She’d probably be more spontaneous on stage, also vocally, Nice find, T!
