Scheherezade Posted July 5, 2016 Share Posted July 5, 2016 A totally convincing, all-round performance from Semenchuk, who effortlessly stole the show on the opening night. The rest of the cast were more park and bark but delivered the goods vocally, with a wonderful warmth and colour to Meli's Manrico, suitable menace from Lucic and great support from Haroutounian and Muraro. Once again, a less than inspiring production, with too many simplistic and overly-signposted projections and a bizarre carnival air to the gypsy camp that was totally at odds with the war-zone brutality of almost everything else but at least the interpretation made some sort of sense, which is more than can be said for many of the latest RO offerings. How nice it would be to have a production that acknowledged the intelligence of its audience! Nevertheless, an enjoyable and rewarding evening. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
