Bachtrack: Le nozze di Figaro at Glyndebourne Festival

"And yet there was time and space for Mozart’s sublime moments. The best of these was the Countess’ lament “Dove sono”, which Glyndebourne débutante Golda Schultz sang with heartfelt beauty: smoothness of voice, with a carefully measured touch of vibrato. As Susanna, Rosa Feola gave a contrasting soprano with real sparkle, particularly good at matching the accenting of her lines to pert, Audrey Hepburn-like facial expressions. Gyula Orendt gave a hilariously sleazy acting performance as the Count, but didn’t really take vocal command of the stage for his big moment, 'Vedrò, mentr'io sospiro.'"
