Metropolitan Opera debut

News: Apr 11 2014

Nicolas beeindruckte bei seinem Metropolitan Opera Debüt in der Rolle des Colline in Puccinis La Bohème diesen März . Kritiker lobten Nicolas’ bewegende Darstellung und schrieben: “In his company debut, Nicolas Testé brought dark hues with a hint of buffo bounce to the role of Colline, singing a ‘Vecchia zimarra’ that was straightforward, but tender nonetheless.” (New York Classical Review)

“That sense of loss was also beautifully depicted by Nicolas Testé’s Colline during his famed ‘Vecchia zimarra, senti.’ Testé’s voice caressed each phrase, underlying a far deeper meaning than just the loss of the garment; in his pained singing, the listener could grasp Colline’s understanding of the tragedy taking place. His final ‘addio’ was held out for a few moments, furthering this sense of loss.” (Latinos Post)

Weitere Engagements diese Saison inkludieren die Rolle des Dr. Grenvil in Verdis romantischer Tragödie La traviata an der Opéra National de Paris. Die spektakuläre Besetzung inkludiert Diana Damrau als Violetta Valéry, Francesco Demuro als Alfredo Germont und Ludovic Tézier as Giorgio Germont. Daniel Oren und Francesco Ivan Ciampa dirgieren das Orchester und den Chor der Opéra National de Paris.

That sense of loss was also beautifully depicted by Nicolas Teste's Colline during his famed "Vecchia zimarra, senti." Teste's voice caressed each phrase, underlying a far deeper meaning than just the loss of the garment; in his pained singing, the listener could grasp Colline's understanding of the tragedy taking place. His final "addio" was held out for a few moments, furthering this sense of loss.

The other three bohemians were all excellent: Massimo Cavalletti as Marcello, Patrick Carfizzi as Schaunard and Nicolas Testé, making his house debut as Colline with an elegantly sung “Vecchia zimarra.”
