  • Roméo et Juliette (Gounod)

    Washington National Opera
    Nov 2023
    • She displayed extraordinary scope, with her soprano plush and limpid across the dynamic range and from high to low. She transformed from a bratty coquette, with outstanding high Cs and D in the Act I Ariette (“Je veux vivre”), into a tragic soliloquist in “Dieu! quel frisson” in Act IV. Her radiant pianissimi impressed as much as her bolder, louder exploits.

    • Rosa Feola, hailed last year for her Gilda at the Met, brought a level of vocal refinement and elegance to Juliet that substantially elevated the night’s proceedings. Her precise, iridescent soprano soared in Act I’s “Je Veux Vivre,” Feola handling Juliet’s coloratura passages with easy confidence and capping the aria with a blazing and generous final high note. Delicate dynamic effects and vivid attention to the French contributed to a captivating vocal performance throughout.
