Great night for Lezhneva! Julia Lezhneva as Fiordiligi at the TCE in Paris
Julia Lezhneva was on a tour of four European cities as "Fiordiligi" in Mozart's "Così fan tutte" together with the Basel Chamber Orchestra and the Basel Madrigalists. Under the baton of Giovanni Antonini, semi-staged performances (directed by Salomé Im Hof) took place in Luxembourg (22 March), Paris (24 March), Hamburg (27 March) and Basel (29 March). The press is enthusiastic about Julia Lezhneva, about the Paris performance you can read: "And what a great night for Lezhneva! Her Fiordiligi was full of tasteful coloraturas and very attentive to Da Ponte’s text." Furthermore: "In the famous “Soave sia il Vento,” her pianissimos were to die for." Read on here.
