La sonnambula - Royal Opera House, 2 November 2011
The Royal Opera House have hit a season low with this limp revival of Marco Arturo Marelli's uninspired production. The only high point is the suavely sung Count Rodolfo of Michele Pertusi. Wigged up and suited George Clooney style, he unexpectedly emerges as a bit of a silver fox as well as an authentic bel canto baritone of distinct flair and elegance.
The rest is another matter entirely.
