Pavol Breslik - Tenor


Don Giovanni (Don Ottavio), Metropolitan Opera New York, April 2009

«Three debuting singers added zest to a star-studded reprise of Mozart's &quot;Don Giovanni&quot; that's returned to the Metropolitan Opera in the waning weeks of the season. </p> <p>Most impressive among them was Pavol Breslik, a young tenor from Slovakia who sang the role of Don Ottavio on Monday night. His light, honeyed voice seems ideally suited to Mozart's refined melodic line, and he put on an exemplary display of breath control with his long, unbroken phrases in the aria, &quot;Il mio tesoro.&quot; Don Ottavio, who has little to do but proclaim his devotion to the heroine, Donna Anna, as she seeks vengeance for her father's murder, can seem a wooden character. But Breslik brought him to life as an ardent, courtly suitor. </p> <p>He is one of several young tenors — others include Piotr Beczala and Joseph Calleja — who are gaining prominence at the Met, a welcome development at a time when the career of Rolando Villazon appears to be unraveling just as he was on the brink of superstardom.»
