Lauretta — Gianni Schicchi


August 2013 Performance

The Aspen Music Festival, Wheeler Opera House  |  Aspen, CO

Conductor: Tomáš Netopil
Director: James Marvel


"Rafael Morales’s lyric tenor made Rinuccio’s ardent music flow winningly and matched up appealingly with Amanda Woodbury’s soprano. Her well-sung Lauretta—hardly the innocent, petulant teenager usually portrayed—began the most famous aria of the opera, “O, mio babbino caro,” with a palpable sense of entitlement, only in the final phrases supplicating to her daddy. It worked." —Harvey Steiman, Seen and Heard International
