  • Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Wiener Staatsoper, Oktober 2019

    Keine Frage, Mittelpunkt des ausverkauften Abends ist die junge quirlige Mezzosopranistin Svetlina Stoyanova als Rosina. Die in Bulgarien geborene und aufgewachsene, am Royal Conservatoir of Scotland ausgebildete Sängerin und Gewinnerin des Ersten Preises der Neuen Stimmen 2017 in Gütersloh, zeigte mit beinahe unbekümmerter Frische ein gesanglich gerundetes und technisch beherrschtes Rollenportrait mit auffallend schönen Höhen, und ihre souveräne Spiellaune brachte zusätzlich Leben in das Haus des Doktor Bartolo.
