Simon was wonderful at the opening of Don Carlo at the Met the other evening, Monday. Luckily, I had the privilege to be in the audience.
There was remarkable concentration of all present for the more intimate moments of Posa and Philip and even more so in the prison scene with Carlo.
In the ensemble scenes the huge, but still surprisingly clear accoustics of the Met, SK’s rather gentle and refined performance was somewhat overpowered by the seasoned and powerful co-singers.
The whole ROH production transfered very well to the Met and I for one hope it soon returns home
