Armida@ The Met 4/19/10

In Uncategorized on April 21, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Anything that has Renee Fleming in it is something to see, hear?. She is wonderful in this hardly proformed Rossini opera. She is joined by a crew of tenors, that’s why it is not done much, led by Lawrence Brownlee as Rinaldo and we are glad that Peter Gelb had the vision to have this gem produced. The Met Orchestra is just the best, led by Ricardo Frizza and the chorus is terrific as usual. A modern set that captures the direction that the Met has to go in order to get a new audience as this one ages out. Love and Revenge are the choices, just like real life. Love enters just like the grammies this year and revenge is properly scary. And Renee sings and sings and sings. She is the Diva of our time.
