Another Tenor Drops Down?

In today’s edition of the Viennese newspaper, “Die Presse” a reviewer gushes over Roberto Alagna’s recital yesterday evening at the Vienna State Opera.

What will surprise many of his fans is the report that, at the very end of his recital, Alagna sung the Serenade from Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” likely the first time that any audience has heard Alagna sing baritone. The critic raves: “such refined phrasing, it has not sounded so well on this stage since Cesare Siepi.”

In an interview published on the day of the recital, Alagna also talks about Woody Allen wanting him for a film to be made in Rome. Stay tuned…
