Bizet: Les pêcheurs de perles

Diana Damrau, Matthew Polenzani, Mariusz Kwiecień, Nicolas Testé
The Metropolitan Opera
Gianandrea Noseda, conductor
Penny Woolcock, director

Label: Metropolitan Opera / Erato
Release date: February 24, 2017

“Nicolas Testé, a voice of bronze with perfect diction, proposes a Nourabad that is severe and intractable, blinded by his religious convictions.”

{Nicolas Testé, voix de bronze et diction parfaite, propose un Nourabad sévère et intraitable, aveuglé par ses convictions religieuses.}

Forumopera.com

“A near-constant presence around Léïla is the towering figure of forbidding high priest Nourabad, played by Damrau’s real-life husband Nicolas Testé. The tall French bass-baritone does not have an aria as such but the solid, dark timbre of his voice coalesces successfully with his authoritarian manner.”
