Otello_Opera Bastille_Renee Fleming Alexander Antonenko_17.06.2011

Verdi transformed turned his opera on Shakespeare's play into a timeless drama of moonlit lyricism and savage violence. Renée Fleming returns to Paris Opera in the role of Desdemona alongside Aleksandrs Antonenko. Only that on the day I was there there was a strike. Thank God the performers had nothing to complain about. It was the employee's strike. There were no sets, no special lighting. It was opera in concert. But it was perfect. Great Renee!
