There’s just five vocal pieces on the list, but among them is “Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio”, which is my favorite guilty pleasure concert aria. It means I will set up the napolitana for a double espresso, put up my feet and lean back in bliss while the music provides the cream and the sugar.
Also on the list: “Ah, se il crudo periglio” from Lucio Silla and I am really curious how Devieilhe’s approach on that one is – it’s a huge dramatic showpiece, but also narratively challenging.
There will be bedazzle aplenty, but what will she do with it in addition?
Looking forward to finding out tomorrow night.
