  • Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk

    Gran Teatre del Liceu
    May 2023 - Jun 2023
    • Veteran Paata Burchuladze did well in the role of Titurel.

    • Titurel was the once-great bass Paata Burchuladze, who still has a strong voice. It was a pleasure to see him back on stage.

    • La voz grande y experta -aunque ya muy tocada-, el talento dramático y la sobresaliente dirección teatral hicieron virtud del defecto y otorgaron conmovedor realismo al enfermo y anciano personaje. [Translated] The large and expert voice - although already very touched -, the dramatic talent and the outstanding theatrical direction made a virtue of the defect and gave moving realism to the sick and elderly character
